By "USB wireless internet" I assume you are referring to a communication card from a cellular telephone carrier.
I also assume that despite the fact that you have singled out Safari, in reality you will find cannot access the internet at all through this device, e.g., sending and receiving mail through Apple Mail, using iChat, using Software Update, etc. I say this because when Safari refuses to access the internet through a particular device, it's very rare that the problem turns out to be peculiar only to Safari. (To answer your original question, no, no special settings are needed.)
Many of these cellular internet cards come with "install me first" software for the Mac that is written badly and doesn't work on the most current versions of the Mac OS. Your first step (assuming you have another working route to the internet) is to visit your provider's website and download the current version of his Mac connection software (which will almost always NOT be the version you got in your product box). Install and run it exactly according to the instructions (they are often so fragile that any variation at all will break them), and then try again.

You need to check whether ISP is working ok. To do this, connect your Mac Pro direct to your ADSL modem and see whether you can connect. If so, your Wireless may be too congested. Try to use a free WiFi scanner to check others who are on your channel. If you cannot find a clear channel to use, you may need to use another freq band AP, normally they are 2.4G WiFi, you can now use the 5.4G WiFi. You Mac Pro should support this band.

If you have "good batteries" installed in the mouse and keyboard and you still have the problem- the best way is to remove the devices via the System Preference panel in your MacBook and then re-install them again. It is important that you remove them first as the system may revert to the previous connection. Good luck!

Can you connect hardwired?
If so, try selecting "Software Update" from under the Apple in the upper Left hand corner. There have been a number of updates that effect wireless connectivity.
