I was having difficulty getting a good connection to a Linksys access point in my home (802.11g). The distance from my PC isn't actually all that far (just a couple of rooms), but apparently the walls in between and/or the low power (?) signal from the router resulted in reception hovering around 2 bars on both my laptop's built-in wireless and my desktop PC's Netgear WPN111 USB adapter (internal antenna).

Ping times to other machines on my local home network were all over the board, 5ms, 100ms, 1500ms, time-outs, it was pretty terrible. Playing online games was out of the question. PingTest.net gave me a grade "F"

So, after looking around a bit on the net and hearing generally good things about these Alfa units, I picked up this 2watt 802.11n-compatible one (figured I might be on N networks in the future).

I plugged in the Alfa, let Windows find and install drivers (I still had my Netgear USB attached at this point, to let it connect to Windows Update if needed), removed the Netgear, set up the network connection using Windows's built-in functions (didn't bother with installing Alfa's drivers/utility)...

...boom! Immediately gets 4 bars. I moved the adapter around a bit and got it to stay at 5 bars.
Local network pings are consistently <1ms and PingTest tells me "grade A." It's like night and day.

I can't say for certain if I really needed a "strongest on the market" adapter, or if any random adapter with an external antenna might have worked, but in any case, this solved all my problems very easily and didn't cost much.

For reference, the machine I'm using it on is running Windows 7 64-bit.
PingTest.net results are of course dependent on your internet connection on top of your local connection.

I share wireless signal from my neighbor's router, I have an old linkSys WUSB11 works ok for years, usually I get two bars on signal strength. Bought a new PC with Windows 7, also need a new adapter which supports Windows 7, I bought a LinkSys WUSB100 because it is a name brand and my previous LinkSys WUSB11 works ok. Not quite, the WUSB100 only get one bar and some times two bars on signal strength. Switched to NetGear WP111, this one works better than the WUSB100, but just marginally better. Based on Amazon reviews, try this Alfa adapter, installed the drive, connected the signal, immediately I got three bars on signal strength, it does work better than other adapters. Only one thing is, the one I bought came with the original antenna and a 15 inches 9db antenna, the 9db antenna make no different and actually worst.
Update, 9/29/2010, I saw reviews on the AWUS036H (1000mw) which is lower end model than this one. Many people claim it works better. So I give it a try, yes, it is absolute better, I got 5 bars instead 2-3 bars, the cheaper lower end model did work better. Don't waste your money just go get the AWUS036H instead, don't border to get the 9db antenna too.

As the happy owner of an Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW wireless adpater, I purchased the Alfa AWUS036NH 2000mW wireless adpater for my second computer expecting to be ecstatic.

Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that the 2000mW adapter has more difficulty finding, acquiring, and maintaining connections to wireless access points than does the less expensive, supposedly less powerful 1000mW adapter.

Regardless of the combinations of cables, antennas, computers, locations, and updated drivers I tried, the 2000mW adapter consistently found fewer than half as many access points and reported far lower signal strength than did the 1000mW adapter.

Assuming that I'd received a defective item, I contacted a customer service agent at DB Roth who politely handled my call and promptly shipped a replacement adapter.

Unfortunately the second AWUS036NH performed just as badly as the first. Since both 2000mW adapters had exhibited the same behavior and the 1000mW adapter performed perfectly (as has been similarly reported by other Amazon.com customers), I have decided to exchange the 2000mW adapter for the less expensive 1000mW adapter.

DB Roth customer service has been extremely helpful. In spite of a brief misunderstanding over shipping charges, Bianca in customer service deserves very high marks.

Sadly, I can't say the same for the Alfa 2000mW adapter.

Out of the box works with Windows 7 x64, and Backtrack 4 R1 (vmware), I didn't even have to install the drivers just plug and play. Picked up 9 more access points then the stock wireless (Intel Wireless 4965AGN) in my laptop. I don't have any other usb adaptor to compair it to but I am going to buy the Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW to compair it with this one, also I do need 1 more wireless adaptor. I bought this mostly to pentest with Backtrack 4, and it works great with it. I only tried it on BT4 R1 wmware, I have not tried it with others.

Also I bought this after reading this from alfa's website.

"This AWUS036NH vs. Alfa's popular AWUS036H 802.11g adapter: We have compared this model to the 1-watt AWUS036H adapter from Alfa. This model pulled in more signals than the AWUS036H. However the AWUS036H was getting stronger signals to many of the access points both could detect. Not a great deal stronger, but enough to indicate the AWUS036H 1-watt adapter has a better receive sensitivity for 802.11g networks. The AWUS036H is only 802.11g standard though, whereas this AWUS036NH is 802.11n standard and can get longer ranges and faster speeds when used with 802.11n standard access points. Because 802.11n is a newer standard, many of the access points around you (in neighborhoods or places you travel) will still be 802.11g. However over the next year, many technology publications indicate that a high number of people and businesses will be upgrading their wireless networks to 802.11n to meet the growing need for faster speeds. The AWUS036NH will work with these new 802.11n signals as they begin to spring up everywhere, and will work with them better and faster than the AWUS036H and other long range Wi-Fi products on the market today.
