Introducing the Rokland Knowledge Base (beta)

We are excited to announce the beta version of Rokland Knowledge Base, a comprehensive set of articles and troubleshooting guides related to Alfa Network products.

Rokland Knowledge Base is a searchable categorized collection of support documents for the products we sell. As always, our technical team is here to help by phone or email for any purchases you have made from us. But our knowledge base is a great resource for those that may own Alfa products but did not buy from us (meaning phone and email support is not available), or for those who may need assistance after hours or on weekends.

The articles are limited in number now but we will be adding more resources and materials each week.

Using Alfa AWUS036NHA on Microsoft Windows 10

Alfa has not released a driver package for Alfa AWUS036NHA (Atheros AR9271 chipset) beyond Windows 7.

However it has come to our attention that AWUS036NHA can be stable on Windows 8 and 10 using this third party driver. This driver was made for a different brand product which uses the same AR9271 chipset. Note that after installing, the device will appear in Device Manager as "TP-LINK Wireless USB Adapter" instead of Atheros or Alfa. This is because TP-Link is associated with Microsoft as the Device Developer ID.

We have tested the driver extensively and it appears to work with the Alfa AWUS036NHA well. However it should be considered a beta driver until further notice.
