Wireless PCI Card Not Working

I have a "USR5416 802.11g Wireless Turbo PCI Adapter" that I've had in my other computer for awhile now and I recently got a new computer, so I took the Wireless Turbo PCI Adapter out of the old one and put it inside the new computer. I'm pretty sure I put it in correctly and installed the new drivers on the new computer.

However, it finds about 3 networks(internet connections) in my area but none of them have signal(weird?) and when I tried to connect to my desired connection, it reboots after 4-5seconds of trying to connect to it.

I've tried reinstalling and making sure it's fitted perfectly inside the socket.

The weird thing is, I was transferring files from my external drive to my HD and it rebooted after like 3minutes(when the PCI card was inside). So I thought that was pretty weird...so I pulled the PCI card out and tried to transfer my files again, everything went fine and no reboots.

Anyone have any idea why it isn't working? =(

Thanks!

I don't know for sure but if you switched from XP to Vista it may be the drivers don't work with vista.I've found a lot of hardware does not have drivers for Vista.
