Don't detect wireless adapter

I have recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit, but when i inserted my Compaq Wireless adapter (network receiver or whatever it's called), USB, to connect my computer to my wireless network, windows doesn't detect it. It has worked fine on Windows XP on the very same computer, but now - nothing.
Any help would me much appreciated.
