3.0 out of 5 stars Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW 1W 802.11b/g, 30 July 2011

This review is from: Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW 1W 802.11b/g USB Wireless WiFi network Adapter with 5dBi Antenna and Suction cup Window Mount dock - for Wardriving & Range Extension (Electronics)
OK the Alfa AWUS036H is a great device. How do I know? Well it's in the blood of the Alfa brand. The hardware has always been excellent! It's the Drivers that are the issue with this device. I use Windows 7 Ultimate and have had a few problems with the drivers. Example is you leave the computer on all night. The next morning it won't be working. Why? It's the drivers after they have been restarted the device will work again. If you use the sleep function in windows 7 you will also be disappointed because it won't work after waking, time for a reboot :/ It's all working now! But what if you turned your computer off and even pulled the plug out? Then it will work when you start the computer! Problem solved OR... is it? This is one of the bad points about this device. Let's not finish on a bad point after all I like this device. A Great point is the signal Strength and Link Quality you are 100% guaranteed to get good signals if not Excellent. And its built robust so it won't break easily so Alfa chose quality over eye candy. That's why some say its "cheap" It's far from it, even the antenna is very strong.

Advantages: Great Device with excellent signals and will last very long.

Disadvantages: Somewhat not so good drivers but are not very far From good.
