I installed this in an old computer they had in a detached garage so they could look up info on vehicles they were working on and listen to music from their main PC... even through the siding of the garage and house it got an excellent signal. It installed easily and worked right away...

The installation CD installed the driver without a problem. Physical installation of the card was not a problem and the Windows new HW wizard associated the card with the driver. The card's utility installed and came right up. Creating a profile for the wireless network and router was no problem.

But, even though the card found the router and connected it reported limited connectivity. Using the Hiro utility it reported the card had an internally configured IP address and a default gateway IP address of 0.0.0.0. In short, the card failed to get it's configuration information from the router via DHCP. This problem was unique to the Hiro card (the two laptops we were using while sitting right in front of the Hiro machine worked fine with the router, as did the 2 TVs, 2 DVDs, and 2 Satellite boxes, which all had internet connections to the router configured via the router's DHCP service.

The Hiro utility does not provide an option for manually configuring the IP address, so that workaround was not available. Configuring the IP addresses manually for the card via Vista TCP4 properties resulted in blue screening.

I attempted to find an updated driver as the one on the CD is circa 2006. I found them and down loaded, but Vista did not recognize them.

So, after about 6 hours invested I tired of fighting the card and Vista and I packed it in and got a RMA this morning.

Working with Windows 8 was my key criteria because my old wireless PCI adapter which was running fine under Windows 7 was consistently dropping connections under Windows 8. There is no Windows 8 specific driver for this card, but the Windows 7 driver works fine.

I am using this in a custom arcade cabinet I built my son. With the PC at near floor level behind thick MDF, situated in a basement room where the access point is upstairs in a kitchen cabinet at ceiling level, I had concerns about getting a usable signal.

The remote antenna on this unit was just what I needed. I wish the cable were about 1 foot longer for my use, but it's plenty long enough for your typical desktop application. Pulls the signal in great. I have about 80% signal strength.

The software though, is a hassle. Once configured it is solid, but it didn't always operate as expected during configuration. If you bear that in mind and can get past the frustration, the rest of the product is great.

The Hiro H50069 - Network adapter - PCI - 802.11b, 802.11g did not fit in the available card slot of our new HP Pavilion desktop model P6210F (Windows 7) which we bought in November of 2009.
I bought the Hiro H50069 based on very good reviews but was very surprised, that the card did not fit into the card slot. The pin arrangement and physical length of the PC board and the card slot were very different.
I thought these things were standardized by now. Maybe the standard had been changed?
I got a full refund from Amazon without any problem after I sent back the item.
I bought a D-Link DWA-131 USB Adapter and after getting the driver for Windows 7, the communication was established very quickly.
