If you are talking about normal wired internet, then it really makes no difference. For wireless, some versions (distributions)are a bit friendlier but--even in this case--it is not a major discriminator.
Personally, I would choose a distro for a lot of other reasons.

Tell us more about what you have used / tried, and what kinds of issues you have had.

Long answer:
any live cd, assuming it supports your hardware, which typically it would.
Strictly, you do nothing in Knoppix and "It just works"
Slax and puppy need a few clicks of the mouse and require reading of 2-3 sentences in plain English.
