Hi Chrisopher L or anybody, Maybe you could give me a lead also, I thought I'd try a wanadoo livebox as an inexpensive way of getting started with a wireless connection. After inserting the wanadoo disk the program stops due to a problem with Micromedia. I tried it without the disk and entered the WEP code but although a wireless connection was available I could not get it to connect.

Any advise would be welcomed.

It is highly likely a security issue. The French call this "association". Seen and solved many such issues on the Wanadoo/Inventel boxes and I think the Cegetel box is the same. The USB dongle they give you is rubbish and you have a Netgear card so for sure better to set that up instead of the USB antenna.

I'll take the details up in e-mail.
