The iPhone 4 can be connected to the Wi-Fi
through the Livebox
. According to the configuration settings in the iPhone, the Wi-Fi
connection drops when the iPhone 4
goes into standby or inactive mode. If the WEP key
is not stored, the Wi-Fi
will not be able to re-connect automatically. This happens as the iPhone
and the Livebox
have not been paired
. To solve the issue, a new connection has to be established after deleting all previous connections to the Livebox
. Before pressing the join button on the iPhone 4
, the Livebox
must be put into pairing mode
by pressing on the BUTTON 1
as marked on the device. Once the Livebox is in pairing mode, the iPhone can connect to it.
iPhone 4 and Orange Livebox Wi-Fi issue
I purchased an iPhone 4 and want to connect it via Wi-Fi to my Livebox. As long as the iPhone is active, the Wi-Fi is excellent. As soon as the phone goes into standby or is inactive for a while, it drops the Wi-Fi signal. I have been told this is a battery saving function. However, when my problem is activated again, it forgets the WEP key and does not re-connect automatically. I get the message "unable to join.....network
Here are the steps that are required to connect your iPod/iPhone to a Live Box (Wi-Fi): I have had the same problem.
Configuring the iPod/iPhone
- Go to Settings
- Select Wi-Fi
- Move the little slider and the Confirm Access cursor to the right
- Select the small blue arrow (network) and select "Forget this network"
- Return to the main menu, choose Settings, then Wi-Fi and wait for the iPod Search all Wi-Fi networks.
- Click on the name of your network (not the blue arrow but the name of your network).
- The iPod then asks for a password. This password is the WEP key of the Live box (it is located below it)
- Enter the WEP key respecting the uppercases (press the arrow below the Q, at each letter you write) AND WITHOUT spaces...
- Do not press "Join" immediately, you must first put the Live box in pairing mode
- Configure the paring mode of the Live box
- Press BUTTON 1 of your Live box to put it into pairing mode. The LED flashes Wi-Fi Live box and now with the iPod select "Join".
- Wait a few moments that connects the iPod, from now you can surf the internet.
- Setting the Live box into pairing mode is done only once.
