The wifi adapter is presumably usb 2.0 so you will need usb 2.0 ports on your pc. Might work without but I used a netgear wifi adapter over usb 1.1 and it was an awfully unreliable experience.

Other than that, all you need is service pack 2 or 3 installed

as above - service packs seem to be the key
