I'm trying to use the ultra-cheap Getnet GR-124W wireless router in WISP mode to extend the range of a Wanadoo 3D-68 Livebox. Looking at the configuration pages of the two devices, the Livebox lists the Getnet as an associated device, and the Getnet cheerily reports a healthy link to the Livebox. But the Getnet-to-Livebox route will not yield one actual bean of data from the internet. I can't even get into the Livebox configuration pages through the Getnet (my browser reports 'connection refused').

Details: I've mostly been trying the Getnet on the ethernet port of an old Linux notebook, with the Livebox connected by wireless (Tenda PCI card) to an XP desktop so I can see what's going on. I've run the latest Getnet firmware update. I've tried switching off the firewall and encryption in the Livebox. I'm certain I've entered the WEP key correctly (copied and pasted from the same document on both PCs). I've re-set access to the Getnet from to to prevent any confusion. Both devices are on channel 1. They're both in the same room at present.

It looks as though the Livebox won't fully open up to the Getnet for some reason. Is there anything else I can try?

Try disabling wep see if you can ping the getnet router, then try pinging the dsl modem (you wont get the modem if you can't ping the router). Does your dsl require a username and password? Lastly are you in europe allot of the info on that model of router is in french and several other languages besides english?
