orange livebox and which usb adaptor

I am about to take delivery of an orange livebox. I am not too excited but might as well use it. My query is will this work reliably with any usb adaptor and will it work with any ISP?

I am curious because I intend to donate the livebox (or less favourably, my netgear router with netgear adaptor) to my girlfriend. I would prefer to give her the livebox and continue using my netgear set up which works fine with orange.

Will the livebox work with, say a Belkin USB adaptor on her pc so that she can continue using her Nildram connection?

Thanks you very much

It should be possible to use "third-party" wireless adapters with the Livebox but, as I understand it, you need to put it into a special 'connection' mode for the initial connection of the adapter to it.

The Livebox will almost certainly be locked to the Orange network so that it cannot be used in conjunction with a different ADSL provider.
