I don't think it's a Vista problem - I am running two Windows Vista laptops connected to a Belkin wireless AP and to TelstraClear with no problems.

I would start by checking that your Belkin is configured to connect to the Internet with the correct IP address, DNS server and gateway addresses. Make sure connection type is Static IP address.

In your LAN configuration make sure the DHCP is handing out addresses in the correct range.

Then from one of your PCs I'd PING another PC on your LAN by IP address. If it responds then network is most certainly working fine. Make sure you don't have any firewalls blocking PING on your LAN otherwise you can't test.
