i have a orange livebox connected to my desktop via a wired connection...i have been looking at these usb network adapters so i can get a wireless connection to my livebox (router) will any of these usb network adapters work with my set up or do i have to find a specific one?

This one appears to work with the livebox, but they are fussy. Read the reviews on the link and would be a good idea to contact Orange support before you buy.

If you go to the Orange shop the wifi adapter in there is the one I bought for my livebox it may cost a little extra £24.99 inc VAT and delivery, but it worked straight out of the box with no hassle

Are you trying to connect another desktop, or a laptop?

Most modern laptops have wireless built in.

Do you still have the adapter that came with your Livebox?

Belkin wireless card will work with livebox,but range is minimal for some reason and connection drops intermittently
