I purchase the awuso36h and then it went dead. It served me a good time. I decided to purchase the awuso36nh which is a 2w wireless adapter. This adapter was connected to my 15dbi Omni-directional antenna which is 40 feet above ground. I must confess it worked excellent until my alfa 1w booster (failed within a month). One thing for sure with this adapter it is very durable. ( I have this adapter for over a year. after my booster died I began to use this adapter alone and I picked up about 15-18 wireless access points, mostly with a 3 bar signal. my internet connection faded from time to time because of distance and interference and other factors. I decided to research on other adapters that has good receptivity and found several post as to the awuso36nha and how sensitivity it was to weak signals.
I also found post where the awuso36nha is good for hacking and packet injection in backtrack. i did some more digging and found some facts ,that is, the awuso36nh has sensitivity of around -71dbm while the awuso36nha has a sensitivity of -91dbm (excellent for weak signals). note these are all theoretical statements. i even read a web page that hakshop.myshopify.com as to how the auwso36nha is excellent.
when the awuso36nha arrived i downloaded the latest drivers from the official alfa site.I tested use the awuso36nha for six months.In addition i used the AWUSO36NH for over 1 year. My tests and hard work came from Wireless Penetration and Comparative analysis in real life situations :
NO. OF NETWORKS DETECTED
AWUS036NH- roughly 10-14 Networks
AWUS036NHA- roughly 22 Networks
TP-LINK WN722N- 3 to 4 networks ( i am assuming that the circuitry for this adapter wasn't designed for an amp with long cabling to outdoor antenna otherwise it worked well with a small indoor antenna)
AWUS036NH- 1 Mbps to 5Mbps for most networks
AWUSO36NHA- 20Mbps TO 54Mbps for most networks
TP-LINK WN722N- connected to 1 out of a total of the three networks in detected
SIGNAL QUALITY (with a 5W booster)
AWUS036NH-Excellent (4 bars maximum for most networks)
AWUSO36NHA- Very Poor (1 to 2 bar signal for most networks-but was able to connect with better speeds than the awuso36nh)
TP-LINK WN722N- 1 to 2 bars
AWUS036NH- unstable internet connection for weak signals
AWUSO36NHA- fairly stable internet connection for weak signals
TP-LINK WN722N- unable to test thoroughly
AWUS036NH- Adapter does not shutdown randomly.
AWUSO36NHA- Adapter shuts down randomly, you have to manually plug and unplug adapter after a full day or 2 days of work.
TP-LINK WN722N- no random disconnection observed for short period of use
AWUS036NH- Adapter gets hot quickly
AWUSO36NHA- adapter gets slight warm
TP-LINK WN722N- adapter gets slight warm
HANDSHAKE TESTS- BACKTRACK 5 R3 AIREPLAY SUITE
AWUS036NH- Not excellent in grabbing handshakes- have to try a couple of times for the adapter to get it right
AWUSO36NHA- Excellent Handshake grabber!
TP-LINK WN722N-adapter gets slight warm
REAVER 1.4 IN BACKTRACK 5 R3
AWUS036NH-Authentication with networks well and packet injection works fairly (16-20 pin/sec)
AWUSO36NHA- Authentications works well and packet injection is fast (4-8 pin/sec) however reaver sticks due to adapter random disconnection
TP-LINK WN722N- unable to test due to fewer unencrypted access points detected.
CONCLUSION 1: the alfa awuso36nha is a good adapter when compared to the awuso36nh, that is, the awuso36nha provided a stable connection with good transfer speed even though it Gives A 1 TO 2 bars signal strength. On the other hand the awuso36nh provide a GOOD connection with less transfer rate and is not good at catching weak signals. so what is important?
TRANSFER SPEED vs SIGNAL STRENGTH?.. all two factors are important but i would go with signal strength since without signal you cannot transfer..
ALFA AWUS036NH IS SUITABLE FOR INDOOR USE WHERE ACCESS POINTS ARE RELATIVELY CLOSE. IT IS ALSO AN EXCELLENT ALL ROUNDER!
HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE A AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA, THE AWUS036NHA IF VERY GOOD AT PICKING UP MORE ACCESS POINTS AND CONNECTS WELL TO NETWORKS (DESPITE RANDOM DISCONNECTIONS AT TIMES AND A 1 TO 2 BARS SIGNAL STRENGTH). THE AWUS036NHA IS THE ONLY ADAPTER WITH THE ATHEROS 9271 CHIPSET THAT IS BUILT INTO A CIRCUITRY THAT IS WELL DESIGNED FOR LONG RANGE CONNECTION AS COMPARED TO TP-LINK WN722N (I WILL SEE IF I WILL TRY TO GET A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE TO SHOW THE COMPARISON BETWEEN THE THREE ADAPTER...ALL FOR NOW
I install the drivers for the correct model AWUSO36NH in a clean install and updated windows 7 pro, windows 8 pro, and even used in Ubuntu 13.04 all to which perform in the same way poorly (finding half of access points)Removing one star from ratting. Out performed by the AWUS036H in the same machines with a secondary hard drive with all the previews operating systems mentioned clean installs and fully updated.
I also use the AWUS036H for some WiFi network classes and have no problem with this model, to the contrary with the new Alfa AWUSO36NH that will stop doing the work i asked it to do at mid point. Did not notice unit over heat, what i did found is that if i changed the antenna for one of the old AWUS036H the signal, and connections were more stable. That's why i removed another star from the product as it should work without having to change its original antenna, probably i got a bad antenna with my product:(
