How to Connect a Phone to an Orange Livebox

Updated March 23, 2017

Orange is a broadband telecommunications company based in the UK that offers Internet service through a DSL-like modem called Livebox. Livebox allows you to connect to the Internet through a wired or wireless connection. To establish an Internet connection, you must set up your Orange Livebox, which requires you to connect your phone line to the device.

Insert the Orange Livebox installation CD into the C drive on your computer. Wait for the program to load automatically.

Select the option to install Livebox for the first time. Click "Next." Gather the Livebox modem, Ethernet cables, broadband cables, filters, power adaptor and your orange user name and password.

Click the option "Yes I have everything" when prompted to do so, then click "Next."

Connect the power adaptor to your Livebox and plug the device into the electrical socket.

Connect one end of the broadband cable into the "Broadband" slot next to the power adaptor.

Connect the other end of the broadband cable into the broadband filter. Connect the filter to your phone line's wall jack. Connect your phone line into the second port on the filter.

Return to the computer and click "Next" to confirm that you have completed the steps. Select the option to install the software.

Connect one end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the back of the Livebox and connect the other end to the Ethernet port located on the back of your computer.

Return to the computer and click "Next." Select the option to allow Livebox to check your Internet connection. Once connected, you will be asked to enter your user name and password to connect to the Internet.


The "@" broadband light should flash slowly on your Livebox after you plug up the device. If the light does not flash, it could be because your service is not active. It could take up to 10 days before broadband accounts are activated.
