I have the same problem and have not tried to fix it yet, however, the one and only way to do it, seeing as there is no made driver for vista and dell said there will not be one is to do what is called vista compatiblitity mode. to do this ......

1. Locate the installation directory and right click the .exe file
2. Select the compatibility tab
3. You can now choose to run the program in Windows XP comatibility mode (make sure the "Run this program as an administrator" box is checked)

Like i said if this dosnt work, i dont think anything will...

Here is the driver for Vista. (32-bit only)

This is the original XP driver and it works just fine. I use these things around the shop and I have some for sale on ebay. This driver package contains the drivers only. I have repackaged this driver myself so it won't give you hard time. I have used this on 32-bit versions of XP, Vista, and Windows 7.

    All this seems to do is to scan your PC for what drivers are needed, but it requires access to the Internet to make it work. If I had access to the Internet, I wouldn't need the wireless USB adapter. I cannot connect to the Internet to download the driver for the wireless USB adapter I need to get on the Internet. I have a chicken and egg problem.

    Is there a way I can get the CD disks for the Vista driver for the 1450?

    Can I download it onto an external hard drive and copy it to the PC that cannot access the Internet without the 1450 adapter?

SOURCE: dell wireless 1450 usb adapter

any wireless router will be ok, they are all the same standard normally 802.11G, but if your adapter is 54MBPS go for a 54G router, or if 108MBPS, go for the faster router.
