Alfa AWUS036NEH 802.11n WIRELESS-N USB Wi-Fi adapter



Alfa AWUS036NEH is an 802.11n wireless Wi-Fi USB adapter with a maximum output power of 1 watt (that's 1000 mW). Alfa Network has become one of the leading wireless networking manufacturers in the world, producing products that get longer ranges than well-known brands such as Netgear, Linksys, and D-Link. This is a single band (2.4 GHz) 1T1R 802.11n adapter with maximum transfer speeds of 150 megabits per second (mbps). This is for one brand new (in retail box) AWUS036NEH wireless adapter with 5 dBi gain antenna. Also included in the retail box is the installation software on CD. This should not be confused with Alfa's AWUS036NH which is a 2000mW product launched in January of 2010 as well. That model is a palm style unit that uses a USB cable to connect to the computer. This model connects directly to the computer without using a cable and has a smaller form factor.


The AWUS036NEH hooks up to any computer that has a USB port and one of the compatible operating systems listed above. It allows you to get a long ranges and 802.11n connectivity. 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.

FAQ- some common questions about Alfa AWUS036NEH 1000mW USB adapter w/ 5 dBi antenna kit:

Can I manually adjust the output power?
-Output power is controlled internally by the adapter. It is not user adjustable. Though you may find a utility that lets you tinker with that, it is not recommended.

Since this has 1000mW 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. Also, the 1000mW number is a maximum number, not a typical operating number. For normal users, output power will not exceed come near 1000mW. Some users may expect that because this has 1000mW of max output, this product will have the same exact range of Alfa's 1-watt AWUS036H. This is not the case. Please see the paragraph above this FAQ box for a comparison of this item and Alfa's AWUS036H 802.11g product.

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.

State sales tax of 6% will be added to FLORIDA purchases only. There is no sales tax for any other state.
