I had this product completely setup within about 1 minute seriously.

High speed wireless stable connection 24/7 since I setup the r36

The latest firmware is already installed.

Didn't need to install anything onto my laptop.

Below are instructions for repeating a signal from a neighbor for example.

1. Just plug the awus036h into the r36

2. Wirelessly log onto 192.168.2.1

3. Click "easy setup"

4. Click "usb wireless adapter"

5. Click "site survey"

6. Click "rescan"

7. Click on the "ssid" signal you want.

8. Click "select"

9. Click "next"

10. Click "done" or you can click the "ssid choice" box, and rename it, and click "done"

(You are DONE) The above instructions are as simple as I could make it.

Security can be added at anytime by clicking on "advanced" and then clicking on "security"

Adding security is almost identical on basically any brand of router.

Look on youtube on how to add security to a router or call customer service.

I'm a full-time RVer, so I bought the Alfa AWUS036NHR along with Alfa R36 router in order to improve my wifi connectivity/speed, and to also establish my own private network (with Mac Address filtering) from a public wifi access. And, since a lot of people might be considering using both together, I'll review them together.

As the reviews on the AWUS036NHR and the R36 seem to be hit or miss (because of misunderstanding their perceived performance), I thought I'd share a bit of information with the general consumer that may be in the market for such a device. A lot of people think "the more bars, the better". And, while that is true in a sense, there is a lot more to wifi signals than bars. Wifi is using two radios that emit the same frequencies in order to establish a connection to each other for information (packets) to travel upon to and from. And, just like a road, if there is a gap or bad spot between two points, items traveling along that road will be slowed down or stopped.

In that frequency, there are three important factors of speed:

(1) "Ping Rate" - How fast peripherals in a network contact each other.

(2) "Download" - How fast data is brought in.

(3) "Upload" - How fast data is sent out.

And, again, just like a road, the wider it is (frequency bandwidth), the more that can travel on it. The bars one sees, only tells them how good of a connection they have with the access point/router, but it gives no information on the rate of data speed. For an indication of how good your wifi connection really is, one needs to do some tests at a site such as [...]

Anyway, back to the point at hand... So, I received the AWUS036NHR and the R36.

I have 2 of these and installed the newest (spring 2012) firmware. These now work great with the AWUS036NHR To get N speed from the extender. The firmware is available through the ALFA web site.

I purchased a Alfa AWUS036H adapter but had issues trying to install the driver via my USB port on my computer. So I purchased the R36 and plugged the AWUSH036H in the back of the R36 router and I now have 5 bars. Whereas before I had only 1 bar with a $75 Netgear long-range wi-fi adapter.

I am over 300' from the router where I get my connection from.

Have to thank William L. at Alfa for his time & help assisting me in hooking up and configuring the router and adapter and getting me back online with 5 steady green bars. Very good product.

Bill.

I live on a sailboat in a marina. The WiFi Access Point is over 100 yards away through a forest of masts and big power boats. I need a high-power connection that I can share with various devices. This does it.

If you want to see what power will do for you, I would suggest getting one of Alfa's 2W USB adapters, either the AWUS036NH, UBDo-nt or the AWUS036NHR. You can use the adapter via a USB connection to a PC and see what you've been missing. You would need it for the R36 anyway. An important part of negotiating a fast connection is how well the remote AP receives your signal, i.e. even if the remote AP is powerful, if you aren't then a slow connection will result. Before using the UBDo-nt adapter all I had were 1-11 Mbps connections. With the UBDo-nt I get 65Mbps. If I had a faster remote AP I could get up to 150Mbps.

If you want an R36 that works right out of the box, the 1W AWUS036H is the turn-key solution unless you know the R36 you're getting is already set up for the 2W adapters. Bear in mind a typical PC has only a 70-100 mW radio, not 1000-2000 mW like the Alfa adapters.

Many people have reported difficulties getting the R36 to work. They don't exactly say why but I suspect the firmware change is confusing, i.e. if you get a 2W adapter it probably won't work unless it says NH/NHR on a sticker. I've only seen one R36 like this and it came directly from Alfa.

Setup of the R36 is fairly straightforward if you have a reasonable level of tech-savvy (I can say this now after setting up 8 of them). It's more complicated if you want to use the R36 with 2W adapters and it comes with the firmware for the 1W adapters. In that case you need to change the firmware.

After initial setup there is nothing else to do.
