What is it he needs? This page has got the connection downloads for livebox etc.


All other connection issues can be explained or sorted from there.

There is nothing useful on that setup disk. All it does is stick orange branding all over your browser and in the case of the one i had crash your computer.
All he needs is the ip address for the routers config page, the default login id and password and the wep key that should be on the box the router came in.
If he has lost that then he will have to connect with an ethernet cable and make a note of the wep key if its readable or enter a new one.
As long as he hasn't done a hard reset on the router it will still be connected to orange and all he has to do is press some buttons on the side of the router and enter the wep key into his pc within the time limit for it to add the mac address of his pc to the accepted list (this all assumes they are using wireless)
All important data is backed up. If you didn't back it up it wasn't important
