Wireless connection.

Hi Guys , someone - please help ! I have previously asked for help with my new wireless set up & things were fine.
I have a new Belkin modem/wireless modem/router .. works fine with 2 x laptops that run XP & now - 1 x laptop that runs vista. ... no probs.But the original desk top that runs vista , will not work "wireless" & will only function / connect to the internet with the ethernet connection ... it sees the wireless connection but cannot use the wireless connection to function ... any suggestions please ?? as ever - many thanks .
