You've not given us much to go on.
I assume your router/hub is all set up and working and you simply want to transfer the wireless adapter from one PC to another?

Have you set up the authentication.
Is the adapter showiung in device manager?
Did vista detect the adapter when you plugged it in?
Is it usb adapter or card?

Can you run ipconfig /all from a command prompt and send output. This will let us know if Vista has seen it. If you see an IP address beginning 169.x.x.x then it means that the card is working but it's not getting an IP address from the router which is probably an authentication issue. I'm assuming your PC has only one network adapter.

windows vista whilst a great program it is a pain in the backside if you are trying to connect a router via usb your problem will be solved with ethernet though
