Strong reception USB WiFi adapter – High Power Palm-size 802.11b/g WiFi USB Adapter with High Gain Antenna Reviews

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

Pros:
A have this USB WiFi adapter for 2 months now. It works as expected. Has very strong reception. To install in Windows you need the driver on CD that comes along in the box. LINUX - backtrack 3 CD is also provided. There card doesn't need any installation. The chipset is REALTEK 8187 and it is compatible with Linux and Windows. This device can be put in MONITOR mode to sniff network traffic.
Cons:
Really none. Build quality seems a little light. Espacially how antena connects to the chassy. It could possible be broken easily it dropped from 1 m on a hard surface.
Other:
Bottomline:
I would recommend this for everyone that uses USB WiFi. The device has really strong reception. It also catches very weak signals and allowes you to enter the network without being dropped off (ejected from network after a sort of period of time as on my build in WiFi). The price is really good. If you use this article for wifi penetration technique, the BACKTRACK CD comes with the device, meaning that the product shall operate under LINUX.
