You don't need an English language manual unless you are going to poke around in the dark corners of the Control Panel, and even then it's not too difficult, especially as you can (usually) change the CP language to English.
DON'T use the setup disk it's far simpler to set up the livebox manually.How to set up a livebox manually:
Before you start you need:1/
The the password and username for the connection, this will be on the paperwork/contract that Orange sent you, or maybe even from the shop. The username will start with fti/2/
A filter on any phone socket in the house that has a phone or fax plugged into it.3/
To plug a lead (supplied) from the 'Line' socket under, or on the side of, your livebox to the adsl socket on a filter, then plug this filter into a phone point.4/
To plug an ethernet lead (supplied with the livebox) from the LAN socket on your computer to the RED
LAN socket under (or on the side of) the livebox.5/
To have the livebox powered up and the computer turned on with a browser open.
(Before proceeding, check that broadband is acive on your line. This will be indicated by a slow flashing @ light (about once a second) on your Livebox - fast flashing may indicate that adsl isn't active on your line)
Now type into the URL field of the browser http://192.168.1.1
and hit enter/go. If all is well you should now see the Control Panel (CP) of the livebox. At this point you will need to input the Username and Password of the livebox CP Both are: admin by default. (NOTE - This is NOT the username & password you got from Orange) Click 'Valider', this will take you to the part of the CP where you can change stuff - exciting intit Smile
Now you should see the page where you can input your Orange username and password for the connection. If you are not on this page then on the left click 'access internet' (under: Livebox) and this will take you to the page you want. After inputting your username and password click: 'configurer'. If you have done all correctly and the line is adsl enabled the livebox will connect to the internet and you will be able to surf the web. if the @ light is lit constantly you are connected.Wi-Fi
- To connect a wi-fi device first you must press the ((i)) pairing button under, or on the back of, the livebox. the This will give you about 5 minutes to connect by wireless, during this time the wi-fi ((i)) light will flash, if you time out just press the pairing button again. The clé de sécurité (security key) is printed on the livebox label, it's very long so may be best to type it into a text document and copy paste.VOIP
(Internet telephone line) - If you have the voip phone contract you should connect the short lead (supplied) with the small connector in the 'phone' socket under, or on the side of, the livebox and plug an ordinary phone into the phone socket on the other end of this lead. When the light with a phone symbol is lit your voip phone service is activated, this may take up to a few hours after you first connect the livebox to the internet. Incidentally, in the CP under 'Services' you will find 'téléphone par internet' where you can find your internet telephone number and whether the service is active or not.NOTE
- The CP information is correct for the livebox mini at September 2010, it may vary for the livebox 2 or other liveboxes, or future firmware upgrades.
Hope this helps
