Pickup currently unavailable at 2251 NW 41st Street

ALFA AWUS036ACH (USB-C) is a long range dual antenna 867 Mbps Wi-Fi USB adapter compatible with Windows Vista through Windows 10. It features two RP-SMA antenna ports, and two 5 dBi dual-band antennas. The antennas are detachable and can be upgraded. It also has a power amplifier that increases it's reception range compared to ALFA's earlier model AWUS036AC.

This is the same model in all aspects as the AWUS036ACH but features a revamped connector on the adapter itself (a USB-C style input for the cable it comes with). The other end of the included cable is a normal USB type A male that goes into the standard USB on your computer. 

Compatible with both the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz bands. With 802.11ac standard routers, AWUS036ACH can achieve throughput speeds up to 867 Mbps, almost three times that of the 802.11n maximum of 300 Mbps. This adapter is backward compatible with 802.11b and 802.11g networks, but will have limited speed with those networks. An 802.11ac router is required for the maximum throughput.

The high receive sensitivity coupled with the internal power amplifier also allow it to pick up Wi-Fi signals from up to 3 times the distance of newer internal 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards shipping inside laptops. New in retail box and includes the adapter, two 5 dBi dual-band antennas, and USB docking base. We buy direct from ALFA and are an authorized retailer of ALFA products. Check directly with ALFA to verify you are getting a 100% genuine ALFA adapter.

Great but not plugNplay

Works great but needs “tweaks” for kali. It’s easier to use single band versions.

Mike Kachar
GREAT External WiFi Adaptor

This is a GREAT external Wireless/WiFi adaptor! It's range is better than I expected. I had thought I was going to need to get directional antenna(s) in order to see my neighbor's SSID (who is across the street), from within my office, but I did NOT need to! Also, the USB cable that came with the adaptor is quite long (approx. 5', I believe), and comes with a USB-C female to USB-A 3.0 male adaptor that is neatly attached to the 5' cable. Also, aside from the 2.4GHz frequency, 5GHz is also supported! This WiFi adaptor is supported & easily installed on Windows 10 + 11, as well as on Debian-based Linux systems (specifically Kali). Also to confirm - it does support packet monitor & injection modes (available on Linux - not sure about Windows).

In all honesty, I cannot think of a negative comment about this adaptor - it truly is a GREAT product, and I recommend it to anyone/everyone.
I hope this helps someone make their decision.

Strong Signals

Working excellently. It receives a stronger signal and is more reliable than my previous brand's WiFi adapter. It is an inconvenience that a disk with the drivers doesn't come in the package. When you have bought a WiFi adapter because your internet isn't working, then having to use the internet to download drivers is pretty ridiculous. I had to drive to a Kinko's and download them to a flash drive. Other than that, I am very happy with the adapter.

Pro’s and Cons

When I finally today got the driver installed (restrictions of 3rd party venders) it is a dream product. Very strong signals and I love it!!! Thank you Alfa!!!
The only thing I wish for is for you guys to put the drivers and info about the products on your own website. Also, drivers for IOS and not just MAC. The Taiwan company in my view lack explanation and adds confusion of the installation process. Could be a lot better!! But they do have many awesome products.

Thanks again.

A "must have" wifi adapter.

I'm real happy with it, It's the best one you sell besides the Alfa ID36ACH industrial grade one. and the usb 3.0 cord is not as bulky as the original one.
I can really pick up the fast 5Ghz band from quite a distance, Thanks.
