Just a quick note to let people know that Alfa's AWUS036H long range 1000mW USB Wi-Fi adapter has tested plug and play in Backtrack 5. This means that no messy Linux driver installation was needed to use the device to hook up with our office AP and go online. We have not done any advanced testing with any programs included in BT5, but as the RTL8187L Linux driver it uses has been around for some time there is no reason to think it will not work with the same programs it works with in BT3 or BT4.

Alfa's AWUS036NHR is the long-awaited successor to their popular AWUS036NH long range 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter. What's different? Even...longer...range...to both N and G access points! Based on the sensitive Realtek RTL8188RU chipset, AWUS036NHR gives you the fast speeds of 802.11n and stronger signals than most existing 802.11n Wi-Fi products. Not convinced? Check out this range comparison test vs. Alfa's AWUS036NH model:

Head over to our "Discussions" section on Facebook to find information on various topics ranging from Wi-Fi output power (and how much it really matters) to the importance of antenna cable shielding.
You can comment, ask questions, or get suggestions from Rokland staff and other Facebook users. We will be adding new discussion topics every few weeks.
One of the many new products we have on our web site this month is Alfa Network's new Tube-U series of long range outdoor Wi-Fi adapters. They are great for use on boats or RVs. There are two flavors- Tube-U(N), which is an 802.11n model, and Tube-U(G) which of course is an 802.11g model. Tube-U features a high-powered Wi-Fi receiver in weather proof casing, as well as a special shielded 16' USB cable designed to prevent against signal loss. It also comes with mounting ties and features an N-male antenna connector. Check out this video:
Timed with the launch of our new web site, we have also jumped onto Facebook.
Don't worry, you won't have to endure constant status updates regarding what our staff members ate for lunch or where they happen to be at any given moment.
Instead you can view our Facebook page to read about new product announcements, see Rokland videos, join a discussion board on a Wi-Fi related topic, or compare product experiences with other people. Studies show more than 1/8 of the time the average web user spends online is at Facebook. Ideally you'd have our blog open in one browser tab and our Facebook page open in another, but we'd settle for either one!
Welcome to the new Rokland.com. We've updated our web site in June 2011 to bring you more products, high resolution product photos, coupon codes, and many other features. We are also incorporating our company blog, RokBlog, directly into our new site. In fact, this would qualify as the inaugural post at RokBlog's new home.
We use our blog for more
than just marketing purposes. While we do announce new products and
features here, we also post new support information relevant to our
product line such as driver updates, Wi-Fi range tests, or demonstration videos.
