I've configued two Windows Vista laptops with my Wireless network. Both of which each took over 15 minutes to configure... I managed to set up two XP laptops each within, about under 3 minutes (providing I plugged the LAN cable in to access the router console and copy the WEP/WPA key).

Windows Vista just seems to hate wireless networking, and its not just the setting up part... file and printer sharing seems to be difficult aswell. If you want to prevent any of these things, then I'd say just simply install Windows XP... Plus if you do install Windows XP, it will be quite fast, considering the nice specs of your new box, 2.33GHz,2GB RAM, 340GB HDD...
