The AWUS036NH hooks up to any computer that has a USB port and one of the compatible operating systems listed below. It allows you to get a longer range than your existing wireless card. It is perfect for netbooks, laptops, and desktops. It features an external RP-SMA connector which is a must have for RVers or boaters that need a high powered USB Wi-Fi receiver to connect to a high gain outdoor antenna they already own or plan to buy.
This item works with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows 10.
Windows 10 drivers may not included on the CD-ROM and can be downloaded here.

Since this has 2000mW output, it will have the longest range and stronger signals than any other product with lesser power, right?
-Sometimes retailers have a tendency to promote a specific attribute of a product as if it is the only thing that matters. In fact, while higher output is a good thing, it is not the only thing that determines your range and signal strength. This has more to do with transmission back to the source, which is important but just one factor of the connection. Some users may expect that because this has 2000mW of max output, this product will have twice the range of ALFA's 1-watt AWUS036H. This is not the case.
How far away can I pick up signals with this?
-For this question there is no exact answer. Wireless range is an imperfect science. The range you get with any adapter will vary markedly depending on the strength and quality of the wireless access point being used, as well as obstacles and interference in the area. Keep in mind that interference can often be invisible. The ALFA is the longest range and most powerful standalone wireless adapter on the market at the time of this writing. Basically, if this kit does not work for you, you will likely need to look into some sort of high gain outdoor setup. If you are trying to pick up signals from far away, and are not sure this will give you enough range, please contact us with details about your situation and we may be able to offer an opinion.
