      Hello all,

      I would stay away from Rosewill. I bought a 4 port card through Newegg.
      The card worked great controlling the radio. I ran into problems when
      the PC sat idle for a while. The serial port would hang up and the only
      way to fix was to re-boot the computer. This was with DX-Labsuite, I
      never tried with N1MM. Also never used with FSK.

      I have a new Dell Optiplex 3100 with Win7 Pro. Yes, I had all of the
      hibernate/sleep/power management options set correctly. I suspect the
      problem was in the card. I even had some contact with Rosewill
      "support", I use that term lightly. They were pretty useless.

      I eventually bought a FTDI chipset USB-Serial adaptor (Sabrent) and all
      works great.
