Vista 64 sp2 Wifi Connection Problems
I'm running Vista 64 Home premium, Sp2 installed, on an Asus n83vm Laptop.
I have had wifi problems from day one, and I've owned this thing for almost 5 years now. I used to think it was just bad reception from a couple of hotspots I would use occasionally. Now, I'm in an apartment complex and cant afford DSL, but there are several unsecured connections that I use to connect with and it's all I have. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Upon googling the issue, I find that it's a pretty common problem and I'm becoming increasingly frustrated as no-body seems to have an answer, aside from upgrading to Win 7. Microsoft recognizes it on their site, and actually provides "Fixit #50357" to correct what they refer to as some kind of "flagging" problem in the registry. When I try to install 50357 I get an error code 2738. Their solution: Fixit #50181. I tried 50181 and it doesn't work, or at least it doesn't solve my problem of getting the 2738 code, every time I attempt to run 50357.

Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers

So I'm stuck in this quandary of inconsistent wifi. Does anybody have a solution? There has got to be one. If there isn't one, then I think we should start a class action law suit against MSN, and make them GIVE everyone who has purchased a PC with Vista, or purchased Vista and installed it on a PC, a FREE upgrade to Win7. This is ridiculous. Are there any lawyers on this site. Let's get this rolling.
