Default Wireless on Vista

Ok so I got 64 bit vista for my newly built pc. The only problem is my previous adapter is not compatible with the OS (linksys WUSB54GS-UK). I was wondering if I could use an ethernet cable to connect from my pc to my home router. The router has 4 ports with one being used on another computer. The router is being used on a 32 bit vista at the minute so will this work for a 64 bit vista computer to be connected to the same router via a cable.

Replies will be much appreciated!

Yus, it'll work. Routers are completely independent of the OS you're running - they all communicate and operate using the IEEE 802 (ethernet) standard as do all network interfaces, and this standard is universal no matter what you're running

How come you didn't just go to a store and buy that cable? Most any store should have it.
