I'm using Kubuntu 7.04 with Orange ISP, but not with their Livebox as I'd 
already bought a wireless ADSL modem before they started 'giving' them away.

I have recently setup a mate's computer with Kubuntu and have managed to 
wirelessly connect to an Orange Livebox though, but it wasn't easy. Spent 
ages trying to get the two to connect before realising that we had to put the 
Livebox in pairing mode first!!
