When I use this product in the same room, and even with one of the same laptops, I get 5 bars of signal, and the utility app says the connection ranges from 98-100% quality! I've streamed all kinds of video content with this new dongle, including HD, and it is amazing how well it works, comparable to plugging directly into the router via ethernet. It also pulls in routers from all the neighbors' houses, which were previously invisible, so I guess we could have free broadband if we really wanted it. The reception is way better than I dared hope for, and I'd buy this product again in a second if I needed another wifi connection for some reason.
In addition, I was surprised at how easily I was able to install the driver, even on Vista. . . when was the last time that happened? I hadn't heard of this company, and I was hesitant to buy from some small company because I've experienced compatibility problems before with obscure drivers working with XP, Vista, even Mac OS. Not this time, I was up and running in a couple of minutes.
One note of caution: the high gain antenna is very long (about a foot) and about a half-inch thick, so it would be cumbersome if you're using it with a laptop or expect it to be portable or unobtrusive.Read more ›
I solved this by also ordering a 6' usb cable extender.
USB 2.0 Extension Cable Type A Male to Type A Female 6 ft, Black
This allows me to move the dongle/antenna for maximum signal strength.
Dongle w/9dBI antenna is top heavy so be aware you'll have to lean it against something. Not an issue for me. Orginally received wrong 9dBI antenna (connecter was incorrect) but both ALFA & DB ROTH customer service were excellent and they sent me the correct one and let me keep the other.
2 antennas and the dongle included with cd. I did not use the cd for installation due to warnings in other reviews. Downloaded driver from ALFA site and it worked perfectly.
For those with Asus Eee 1005HAB's which appear to have major problems with onboard WIFI receipt strength, this is a great fix. Picks up amazing amount of WIFI broadcasts i could not see even with my other machines that had no problems.
Just disable the onboard WIFI and plug this in, my Windows XP picked it right up and it worked w/o any hassle.
I read the reviews about this wireless adapter on Amazon and decided to try it. Man, what a big difference! It connects all the time, every time with no problem. The adapter came with two antennas. A small one and a rather large one. The small antenna works just fine. This is a great product if you're looking for extended range wireless network adapter.
