Well it seems like it is a VERY common problem with the Hero dropping the WiFi connection. I tried many different things when my Hero had 1.5, and finally gave up since nothing seems to help. Then there was a fuss about the problem would be fixed with 2.1, however i didn't it just works as bad as before. Its so bad that is pretty close to useless. If I can keep a steady connection for 5 min, then I'm lucky. I have also tried with WiFi fixer, it tries to reconnect pretty much all the time. I have tried with several different routers. All the router that I have tested it on are working flawless with any laptop computers. Works perfectly on the Iphone as well as Sony Ericsson's X10. Why is this still a problem? Is it a hardware problem? Can't be a router-settings problem, since "all" other devices are working on the routers - and you can't expect to set "all the routers in the world" with specific Htc Hero settings?! The routers I have tried are Billion and SMC routers. Any thought on this?
