Vista,XP and Wireless home networking

I have 3 Pcs connected to an WLan via a Belkin router on a Virgin Media broadband. Before getting delivery of the new Vista Pc,all Pcs were working on the wireless network fine.

However,the new Vista Pc is not able to join the network using a Belkin Wlan G USb Adaptor model no.F5D7050-is this adaptor Vista compatible at all?. What else do I need to do to get my new Vista Pc on the Wlan. Do I need a new Wireless adaptor?

Anybody had a similar problem?
