    Definitely 150Mbps "N"

    posted by wuppo on 10/13/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    This device now has the 3070 chip to provide wireless "N" at 150Mbps. Sensitivity great. Build quality good for the price - I previously also bought sku 30605 - cheaper but build quality nowhere as good as this one.
    Cons:
    Came with Backtrack "9" CD - utter rubbish and did not seem to have the correct 3070 driver for windows, so downloaded from th...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cons:
    - the usb cabel does not have enough room inside the adapter so if you move it, it disconnects. - Box where it was shipped in ...

    Nice

    posted by W0153R on 03/06/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Can act as an AP (Realtek calls it Virtual Wifi), my main reason for buying it, and it does it's job great. Realtek chip, which means good drivers! Strong signal. Build quality looks great, USB-plug fits perfect, thick USB-cable, sturdy casing, nice ante...
    Cons:
    Maybe the fact that it's external, but hey, you can't have everything (at least not at this price-level).

    Good value for price, perfect for wardriving

    posted by thlama on 02/05/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    RT8187L chip! I pushed it up to 30dBm (the linux wireless stack wouldn't let me more, maybe the card supports it but you'll have to hack the regulatory database). Supports injection out of the box. Great for, you know, testing WEP solidity. Good price!
    Cons:
    500kB/s is the best throughput I managed to get (could be a problem with my AP, though...) The antenna it came with needed qui...
