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?

Most USB adapters *SHOULD* work with your Livebox, but, as with everything, in real life that's not always the case. Do Orange have a recommended adapter or make of adapter? Check out their website to see, some ISPs have a compatibility listing somewhere on their website.

I am with orange and have the livebox. I got my adapters from orange themselves. The reason being that there strength to pick up signal is very very good, it has never been week anywhere in or around the house and they are recommended by orange for the livebox. They are about £30.00 which is what you would pay for a reasonable one in the shops. I have never had any problems with these adapters so i would greatly advise them.

Bought a cheap one from a computer fair works well with the livebox all round the house and in the garden.

This is a duplicate thread. Please don't post in more than one forum, it just confuses people because they don't know what advice you've already been given.
