linux internet connection via usb


Is there a suitable linux distro that will connect to the internet by
usb connection.
I am connected to the net with wanadoo france by sagem livebox my laptop is a tiny and has no ethernet connector so my only choice
is by way of the usb sockets,this works fine with windows 98 and
xp but I cannot get connected with any of the linux distros I have
tried so far,these have been dsl ubuntu 6.10 and shinux.
I look forward to any advice.

For those who wonder what is written :
That link is about using the sagem livebox with linux : it is a router provided by a french ISP (wanadoo). Sorry it is in french but you probably not need it outside of France anyway.
