    Vista doesn't like to play nice with the USB adapter.... or any hardware, for that matter.

    I would invest in a cheap wireless router, it's worth the difference.

    Run Windows XP instead? I don't know anyone who has ever had their USB Connector work correctly with Vista. There is a method you can use to make your USB Connector into a wireless access point that will connect to devices outside of the Wii and DS. I'm not sure if that would work, though. When I tried it, my laptop would connect to the internet through the USB Connector, but my DS and Wii would not.
