Unimpressive range and speed, difficult to set up. Not for beginners.

Summary: I bought this with Alfa AWUS036NH to try to extend my WiFi network from my house to my shop. At first, it didn't work at all. Then, I found a business card-sized message in the package that said the firmware had to be upgraded for it to connect to the AWUS036NH.
Summary: This thing doesn't work!!! I can't get anything to come up with the site survey, despite being well with in range of several signals. Connected directly to the Alfa AWUS036NH I can pick up a signal just fine, but as soon as I plug in the R36, I get nothing and can't get through the setup process.
As for the product it is amazing as expected from any Alfa product solid and works ...

Summary: I need to start this review with an apology to the seller. I was very discouraged by the estimated shipping time table only to see it on my door step almost 5 days before the date given. That was disrespectful of me and inexcusable and I am sorry for that.
Summary: I previously purchased and connected an Alfa UBDo-nt for my remote work shop. This worked very well but was connected directly to my netbook through a USB Cable and I wanted a WiFi connection for my tablet when I had it in the shop.
Summary: I love my little ALPHIE! (I named it Alphie as my networks ID). I first bought the AWUS036NHV to pair with the R36 and it didn't work. The R36 would not recognize the 036NHV. I sent the 036NHV back and bought the AWUS036H, it connected right up and works great.
Summary: Did not work with the Alfa AWUS036NHR as a range extender. It said in the user manual of the R36 that it dose support AWUS036NHR & AWUS036H. Updated firmware and still no results. Also tried it with the Alfa AWUS036NHV and also did not work.
Summary: Great product and works as advertised. My intended use is to pick up public wifi signals with landing/pay pages and extend it to all of my personal devices. I will update this review once I have had a chance to test in that setting.
Summary: I purchased this device with the AWUS036HN antenna; work like a charm. I am pulling wifi from outside my building and broadcasting m own wifi signal inside my room. Initially data speeds where slow for my iphone but when I enabled WMM feature on the router my speeds have been fantastic.
Summary: It does work to increase the signal strength when used with Alfa AWUS036H High power 1000mW 1W 802.11b/g High Gain USB Wireless Long-Rang WiFi network Adapter. The instructions are not good at all though. If you are not familiar with this concept, it is likely that you will not get it operating.
