4.0 out of 5 stars amazing bit of kit 1 Feb 2009
this is a amazing bit of kit - while a bit pricy - well worth it for travelers , who stay in of the way places and need Wifi access. As a sailor - we often vist placs where there is no wifi - or so it seems untill you plug in your little ooster aerial - frightening to see how many unsecure wifi access points there are .
typically I find it adds "2 bars" to wifi signal.
I know that people dont like carrying extra kit - this is worth it if your heading off the beaten track

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent result 22 April 2010
Excellent product simple to set-up and reception status went from 2 to 5 bars straight away and is very stable. The adpater is very neat and is about the size of a cigarette packet and sits behind my laptop. Would not hesitate to recommend the Alfa to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Gear! 8 April 2013
By Spiff TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic piece of gear. I hardly think you'll find a better wi-fi product on the market. Very powerful yet so very tiny being just a tad smaller than a pack of cigarettes.

Installation is easy and fast, however the Alfa software isn't very good. There is no option to install the drivers only. You have to install the drivers and their interface. And frankly, their interface sucks big time. I wont' go into detail but it's fair to say the interface fights persistently with the windows 7 task bar interface for command of the Wi-Fi signal.

Being fed up, I removed all the drivers and software from my system. Then I went into Device Manager in windows 7 and manually installed just the drivers by themselves. In "Device Manager" you'll find in an uninstalled condition in "Network Adapters". Right click on this and select "update driver software." and then point it to your driver folder, which I've shown down below. Once you have the drivers installed without the interface you won't have any issues.

You're drivers are located on the included cd. (substitute the driver letter for you own, of course)

E:\driver n document\Windows Driver\11G\11G_Win7\RTL8187\Win7X64

The 32bit drivers are located in Win7x86.

------------------------------------------------

Note: A lot of discussion has floated around about counterfeit Alfa units streaming in at discount prices from Hong Kong. These units may appear to be the real thing but may have different chipsets entirely. Even with the same chipset they could give you a lot of headaches with dropped connections and such.

My sister is poor and cant afford broadband so i bought this for her. She lives about 700 yards from me in the next street and she logs on to my router no probs. She streems video like my router is in the same room.I live up a hill and there is a pub 2.4 miles away that i can see from my house and i can log on to there hot spot no probs with between 4-5 bars of signal. very very impressed and i dont impress easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective WiFi booster 29 Oct 2012
By Biggles
Verified Purchase
After looking around and reading reviews from other purchasers (and not just Amazon)I decided to go for this one. It arrived promptly and was easy to set up if you follow the CD. All done in less than 5 minutes. It pulls in the more distant signals very well and I can even see most of the routers in my road! In my case it improves signal strength by at least 2 bars on a 5-bar scale. In my case it is intended for camping and caravanning use and, although not yet tested in the field, I expect it to be a big improvement over my laptop. There are cheaper devices but I can say that this one appears to work very well. Recommended.

Update - bought the larger aerial thinking that it would result in even greater signal strength, but this was not the case. It is also larger (about 11") and considerably heavier than the standard one, and the base isn't really up to supporting it without keeling over. Not a worthwhile purchase.

Update Apr '13 - the unit (not the longer aerial) failed during use. Immediately contacted supplier who offered replacement straight away. Send the failed item back, and received the replacement almost by return of post. Very good service, no quibble. Happy to continue recommending this item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long range indeed! 14 Jan 2010
This is definitely the best wifi usb adaptar I've ever used! With this beauty wifi range has increased about 2 or even 3 bars, catching wifi networks far far away from my location.

In addition to that, this usb wifi adapter is 100% compatible with Backtrack or any other Linux distro and if you want, you can easily crack wep keys out-of-the-box (for security purposes, of course).

It's a little bit expensive, I know, but it's money well expended. You won't regret!
