Is there any way to test a wireless adapter for troubleshooting purposes? The problem is that an older Compaq Desktop running Vista has issues connecting to networks and sometimes must be rebooted for a network to be found.

Have you tested the wireless adapter on another machine, best way to test IMO.
Anyway lets have a look at a minitoolbox log from the machine with the adapter plugged in shall we.
Please download MINITOOLBOX and run it.

Hi rockmilk. Never thought if that. Don't have another computer to try it on and the computer that has a wireless connection issue is not available to me. Just checking to find ways to test the wireless adapter.
For basic testing how about running a Ping test at various times whilst the computer is in normal use, Ookla Speedtest
