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

Pros:
- It looks well built. - It works under linux (tested with backtrack 3). - It works very well! I bought this an a directional antenna (sku 37185), they work great together (BTW, it's the same manufacturer). I can connect to my friend's router in another building (about 500m far, clear area) and I get a strong signal (48dB). With my built-in WIFI card (an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN) I get only 83dB of signal!
Cons:
- It's a little expensive, but I think it worth the price.
Other:
- It's not a cheap WIFI card.
Bottomline:
I'm not a wireless specialist but I can say that buying a high power WIFI card may not solve your problem, you may consider using a directional antenna too.
