ALFA Tube-UV is a long range outdoor 802.11n Wi-Fi USB adapter for Windows computers. It is a similar product in specifications to the ALFA Tube-U(N) but has a Realtek chipset. It is great for marine and RV use. If you are a into boating, own an RV, or just need a good long range outdoor Wi-Fi adapter at a low price, consider ALFA Network's Tube-U(V) model, a 1-watt (1000mW) 802.11n outdoor wireless USB receiver with N-male external antenna connector.
Easily fasten it to your boat or RV, or an outdoor pole or post. It has weatherproof casing and it comes with a special shielded 5 meter (16 feet) USB cable that is designed to prevent against power loss. Compared to a standard USB cable, the shielding is almost twice as thick. This allows you to mount this item further away from where you will be using your computer. You can connect any type of antenna to this product that has an N-female connector on it. We also sell pigtails and converters if you already own an outdoor antenna with a different connector type.
A great antenna for outdoor use would be ALFA's 15 dBi antenna, model AOA-2415, seen here.
This product does not come with an antenna, and does require one to operate. You will need to purchase or already own a compatible antenna to use this. It does not have any type of internal antenna, and indoor use is not recommended. For indoor 802.11n Wi-Fi, we recommend ALFA model AWUS036NH.
This product is an 802.11n standard Wi-Fi adapter with top speeds of 150 mbps.
