      I doubt if it is anything to do with Vista. I have been running it for months and have had no problems. Maybe if you post your detailed stats, someone will be able to point you in the right direction. Turning off UPnP has been known to improve some connections.

      sometimes when you reboot the router when using vista via wireless it reconnects to the network but it doesn't connect properly. In the network and sharing center it shows the network status as unknown or identifying or something. if this happens simply disconnect from the network and reconnect. It should then be connected properly.

      Hope it helps
