Today we have a Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) beta software package for Alfa AWUS036NH and AWUS036NEH. The package can be downloaded here.
This beta is for new installs only. If you already have software for your AWUS036NH or AWUS036NEH on your Mac, please uninstall it in full before installing this beta package.
While we are not able to officially support AWUS036NH or AWUS036NEH on Mountain Lion yet, please send your feedback and bug reports to us by email.
R36 is a unique WiFi router from Alfa Network, Inc. which allows you to share a WiFi connection from your AWUS036NH or AWUS036NHR WiFi USB adapter. It is the only router on the market that allows the input to be a USB WiFi adapter (the USB WiFi adapter must be Alfa brand, and must be one of the compatible models listed). Using its repeater mode, you can receive a long range WiFi signal on the R36 and share it with other WiFi enabled devices like tablets, game consoles, and other computers.
Need help deciding which Wi-Fi adapter to get? We make it easy with our new feature that ranks indoor Alfa Network Wi-Fi USB adapters by both range and speed. When you are buying an Alfa adapter, you really can't go wrong either way as all Alfa models get good range and speed. But our new rankings show you the ones that get the best overall range and the best overall speed so you can decide which will be the best for your needs.
Our range rankings were created based on a test of which adapter could see the most networks in total. Our speed rankings were created first based on which adapter had the fastest overall connection speed to the router. For those adapters that had the same maximum connection speed, we sorted those based on which had the fastest overall throughput speed to our ISP based on a throughput test. Because this can vary based on ISP and router model, we also averaged in feedback from customers about which model had the fastest througput.
We did not include outdoor models from Alfa, these rankings are just for indoor models.
We have posted version 2 of our Mac OS Lion beta package for users of the Rokland n3 long range 802.11n wireless USB adapter. This beta may also work with Alfa's AWUS036NH
model. This beta package has been tested at our location on multiple
Mac OS 10.7 Lion systems but has not yet been introduced to any beta test groups for further testing. Therefore we are not ready to
call this a stable release. We are continuing to develop a stable Lion
driver, and appreciate feedback from anyone who tries this beta package.
At this time we are not able to provide technical support for use of
the beta software though, but we will publish any known issues/fixes.
