    Hmmm Where to start?

    does it have wep?, have you input the wep key on the laptop? are you using mac address security as well? have you input the mac address on the wireless router?

    Are you pressing the button on the live box to pair the connection when trying to connect you laptop?

    Try removing all wireless networks from your laptop

    Press button one on the back of the live box

    now search for wireless networks and connect.

    had this before - the livebox wants you to use orange adapters. so makes it difficult otherwise.

    Go to the admin screen, and set up a forwarding rule for http traffic to go to the mac and ip addresses of your laptop.

    Ugly way round it but it works.

    yep, from your desktop (which is connected physically, yes?) open a web browser and got to http://192.168.1.1 which will open the admin screen.

    on the laptop, go to a command window (start-run-cmd) and type ipconfig /all

    this will list all your network adapters, find the wireless one and note the ip and MAC addresses (may say physical address)

    back in the admin screen, find where it says forwarding (or similar, i forget the actual wording) and fill in the boxes listed there with the information you've just obtained.

    How does that work then? That would forward requests from the internet on port 80 to the laptop.
