I rent a house on a lake in the Ozarks of Missouri. The house has no internet connection. The owners of the house live 3 doors down the street, a good 300 feet away. In their house they have a wireless router. From the rental house I could not get a signal on my laptop from their router. To do my work I would walk down the street to the patio at the back of their house and sit there to do my work. That didn't work so well when it rained.

I searched NewEgg, Circuit City, Radio Shack, Best Buy and Amazon. It seemed the greatest volume of reviews and the best reviews was for this unit. So I purchased the unit with the 5dbi antenna and the suction cup mount. It worked great! I thought I might need to sit in the back yard of the house I rent to get a signal even with the new antenna, but no I was able to sit in the kitchen at the table and get a good signal. I mounted the antenna to the window of the kitchen door and added a 15 foot USB extension cable to the antenna and I was able to move from the kitchen to the living room and check my email and web sites.

I highly recommended this Alfe unit.

My business is about 200 ft from my home and wireless network, I was constantly dropping connections. This was really easy to setup . I never drop connections and I can see 4 other networks in my neighborhood. It's a great little antenna.

okay, let's cut through the baloney and get real...

if you're reading this review and you're not some geeky i.t. tech, chances are there's only one question on your mind: "can i use this bad boy to steal free wifi from my neighbor?"

let me put your mind at ease. the answer is "HELL YES!"

i'm running the alfa on a dell latitude d4000 laptop with windows xp pro. installation was a snap with the included mini cd. seriously, a monkey could install this wifi adapter. i really have to wonder about the reviews by people who said they had trouble installing this thing.

i have the alfa running concurrently with my laptop's internal wifi card and when i open both of the utility managers, the difference couldn't be more obvious. my internal wifi adapter is detecting four access points right now... the alfa is detecting six.

i used to have to drive to the local net cafe everytime i wanted to steal a movie because i'm too cheap to pay for home internet service. i'm happy to say those days are over.

there are only two problems with this adapter...

the first problem is that this thing is a beast when it comes to power consumption. the first few times i used it i kept getting this error message:

"The Realtek RTL8187 Wireless 802.11b/g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter has malfunctioned and exceeded the power limits of its hub port. You should disconnect the device."

i worked around this problem by purchasing a powered usb hub from best buy.

the second problem is that wildpackets doesn't offer a driver that's compatible with this thing, so you won't be able to crack w.e.p. encryption with it.

fortunately, with the kind of range this sucker gets, you won't need to crack any secured signals.

I was skeptical that it wouldn't work as well as it does. I am on the road a lot and have to locate wifi sites to use; libraries, Miki D's, gas stations, coffee shops etc. This thing allows me to be further away from the buildings, very convenient when the parking lot is full. Very much worth the $30.00 I pd to get it. I also got the one with the suction cup window mount dock--good move...lets me hang it outside the driver window-out of the way of my typing with my elbows. Very good purchase.

I use it on a new 13" MacBook Pro running 10.6. I had to download the drivers from the web. Instructions are really useless. However, the product works really well. I live in a RV park and the park's WiFi antenna is about 400 feet away. The built in airport couldn't connect. With this adapter, my signal runs at about 90%. It was money well spent.

I have the AWUS036NH (2000mw) a more expensive model, many reviews in Amazon said this cheaper and lower end model actually works better. Give it a try, same PC Win7 compare both antennas, AWUS036NH 2000mw only gets 2-3 bars, switch to AWUS036H 1000mw gets 4-5 bars. The 9db antenna make no different, don't waste your money. Also one review said won't work with Window7, it works for me.
The driver is inside the CD under
AWUS036NH\USB adapter\usb_Windows7\RTL8187L_WindowsDriver_6.1313.0613.2008_UI_1.00.0115
follow the animation on how to install.

I'm a full time RVer and always have trouble connecting to wifi at RV parks! Seems I'm always at the edge of the range! I bought this hoping it would help. IT DOES. With Windows Xp I just put the cd in the drive and plugged the USB cord in and windows did the rest. I tried reading the manual and following that: DON'T. Let windows do it.
When I let windows do it I was connected in 3 minutes. Went from 2 or 3 bars to full, from low to excellent, and saw a lot more access points. Now I know when I have a problem connecting it is the parks problem not mine.
In short: easy to hook-up and use, and it works great!
