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.
Summary: I have now gone through 3 of these over the last 3 years. But it's the only kit I have found that is compact enough for travel. ... and with the flat antenna you can pull in Wi-Fi networks that don't even show up on your laptop or phone.
