The culprit was an Asus WR138G v2 Wireless Adapter. With a tiny little
tadger of an antenna. This thing couldn't make a connection on Chuck
Woolery's computer (obscure 90's reference).

I literally sat my desktop About 10 feet away from the wireless router, with
NOTHING inbetween the two. My connection was still intermittant. This
wireless card sucks harder than airlock decompression.

I am beginning to wonder if all of these people who are having problems with
thier Wireless adapters and Vista, just have really bad wireless cards.
