Is Linksys router incompatible with Vista?

I am trying to hook up 2 laptops to my home wireless network. My main Desktop, a Dell, OS is Windows XP professional as is my other desktop one is connected wirelessly with a Linksys Ultra RangePlusN Model# WRT160N router. I have two university students both with Vista (one is on an Acer and the other a Dell) who are unable to connect although they have internal wireless adapter capabilities. Linksys says they are aware of the problem with Vista. One of the students bought her Dell Inspiron at Best Buy with Vista 2 months ago and the Geek squad wants to charge over $150 to come to the house or $119.00 for over the phone service to properly configure my router. Has anyone out there dealt with this problem? Is there a problem with Vista or the way my router is configured. Thanks, will give more info if needed.
