Compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 (not compatible with Windows 8 or 10)
The Realtek RTL8187L chipset inside this device is the same chipset that is in the popular AWUS036H long range 1000mW USB adapter. In many ways, this is exactly like getting the AWUS036H adapter inside an expensive outdoor weather resistant casing.
More about the product: This is brand new in retail box. The WiFi adapter is integrated into the outdoor casing, and the N-female antenna connector is on the top of the case as pictured. The product does not come with antenna and can be used with an existing compatible antenna or any of the antennas in our antenna section that have an N-male connection.
Additional product features:
· Supports wireless data encryption with 64/128-bit WEP, WPA (TKIP with IEEE 802.1x) and AES functions
· Receive sensitivity: IEEE 802.11g -76dBm @ 54Mbps, IEEE 802.11b -92dBm @ 11Mbps
· Output power: 30 dBm (1000mW)
FAQ- some common questions about ALFA UBDo-gt8:
Is this device waterproof?
-This device is weather resistant, but not completely waterproof. In other words, if you have this mounted on your RV and it rains some, it will be fine. But if it falls off your boat into the ocean, it may not be okay. You can leave this outside for extended periods of time, but because it is an electronic item, we recommend bringing it indoors when it is convenient, and not exposing it to long periods of extreme heat or cold.
I pick up more signals using another product that has an omni-directional antenna of the same gain, but UBDo-gt gets better signal to some of them (and also worse to some), why?
-This product has a directional antenna. This concentrates gain in a particular direction for better range and signal in that direction. While it can pick up signals that are in the opposite direction, the distance will not be long, and the range to those signals will be weak. An omni directional of the same gain will pick up more signals total. But this antenna will give you better signal strength to signals in the direction in which it is pointed.
