Rsolupassword / Wifi Security Key

August 22nd, 2016

Good morning sir,

I want to connect a new wifi device but I forgot the password (or security key, I don’t know) of my livebox.

For information, and in order to anticipate the response of the style it is written on a label on the back of the box, it had been changed and it is no longer the one written on the label on the back of the box.

In advance, thank you

Good evening,

I think you need to call customer service at 3900 or 3901 since you have changed the security key (unless you wrote it down on a piece of paper … :/

EDIT: your login and your connection password are in the welcome letter received when you subscribe to an Orange Internet offer.

Hi all.

@ olissime

If you can enter the LiveBox, it’s very simple: tab my Wi-Fi and the security key is shown in the last position.

Otherwise, you’ll have to reset the Livebox…

Then, the password will default to the first 8 characters of the security key (the original one).

(just in case, try admin …)

@scoolup

Thank you for your answer.

One question, however: how do I get into the livebox?

In advance, thank you.

Hello:

1- Open the browser

2- In the address bar enter: http://livebox/ or 192.168.1.1

3- To identify yourself: user:admin password: first 8 characters of the original key (this allows me to tell you yes yes the one on the label)

If the box is very old the password can also be admin.

4- You have a My Wifi tab that will make you happy
:)

Have a nice day.

Hello, 1969. Not sure if this works because the security key has been modified…

So whoever’s in the back got baked… (you need the first 8 characters of the new :/ key …)

You will have to turn to the ISP …

Good morning sir,

@Windows23: not at all, they are absolutely right, the password of the administration page remains the initial security key since the liveboxes were updated to avoid having the admin password

unless of course this password has itself been changed.

Another possibility: if you have already connected your PCs, you can easily find the Wi-Fi security key on them in the wireless connection settings.

It’s true that with another PC, it’s the same ^^

I have a livebox, I changed the Wifi code, I n’t change the access code to the box.

The access to my box is always done by admin/8first characters.

Ps: They say it’s been altered.

I have myself the last black box that orange sent me so yes I’m stuck on this subject.

The odd thing is that the person mentioned:

So this text refers to the old live box (white) knowing that orange sent the new live box (black) and since there was an obligation to change knowing that the old one would not work in the months to come …

‘s pretty weird, right?

@Windows23 I’m even more amazed, I still know a lot of people with the white Livebox. The only difference I’ve seen is that the administration password changed from admin to the first 8 characters. I think he can solve his problem
:)

If everyone has to change boxing, it allows us to send many technicians ^^.

On this occasion of changing the box, he assured me on the phone that the old box (white) would not work anymore because of the change of new technologies!

But this change has to be made over several months, since there are 8 million subscribers at orange …

The technician at orange said that this could explain why some customers are still on the white live box … :/

Re,

The old Livebox version 2 (open book form) is effectively obsolete and can generally no longer be used due to a change in ADSL technology by Orange

It was replaced free of charge last year by Orange.

Mine hasn’t been replaced…

Re,

This happens if your NRA (connection node) has not been upgraded to this new technology.

Were you able to retrieve your Wi-Fi security key? (through the Livebox administration interface or through another connected pc? )
