Died after 40 minutes

Larry Butler Ampz Electronics "Larry", Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: Installed driver/utility. Driver/utility was NOT what was on the CD. Figured out how to install it and it worked. Saw 17 stations and connected to one marked "48%" on the utility's list. It worked. Left it sit, connected, as I did other things. Somewhere around 40 minutes later, looked at utility screen as unit was no longer connected to anything. Tried everything, no change. Returned to Amazon for refund. Searched Google for others with similar results.

Good for what it is BUT

Jared D., Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: I will voluntarily increase this rating once Alfa assures me that it will not (in the future) 'forget' to point out that as the SUCCESSOR to the AWUS036NH (without the R) it has the one MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR inability to work in PROMISCUOUS MODE. If the 'previous version...ie AWUS036NH', (the one that AWUS036NHR was intended to replace) was used AT LEAST PRIMARILY as a pen-testing USB dongle WITH BACKTRACK and the primary reason to BUY A DONGLE IN A PEN TESTING ENVIRONMENT...

Didn't work for Windows 7 64-bit

experience nuvi 2595LMT, Amazon
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Needed a device with a little more signal to reach my AP. Worked great for XP-32 and Win7-32 . Wouldn't work for Win7-64 (which is what I purchased it for). Would install, and Device Manger reported "this device is working properly". It could never detect any AP's in the area or receive any signals. Windows could not resolve the problem. Tried CD drivers, and drivers from the vendor's website. Have two other usb adapters, and they are working fine.

If you are deploying to somewhere with "Morale" Wi-Fi you need this.

DAVID J. YOUNG, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Product is a little difficult to get up and running, its not "plug-and-play" so you will need to understand how to disable your built in wi-fi adaptor and to select the right channel and to do some set up things. It will freeze up a bit say one every 3 days and I have had to just unplug it and let it reset for 10 seconds then plug it back in. Recommend getting the +10db gain antenna for like $6 to go with it, significantly increases signal strengths.

A great long-range adapter

N. Trotter, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: I split ISP charges with my neighbor two houses down, but with the AWUS036NHR, it's like I'm only 2 rooms away from the router, and that's with stucco and plaster walls. This is a great follow-up to the AWUS036H b/g adapter (which is still a great adapter but doesn't work with my MacBook Pro running10.8).
