We've got this 802.11g wireless USB adapter from Alfa with a special Alfa-branded 7 dBi directional panel antenna and mount with suction cup and clip. It also comes with the regular factory 5 dBi omni-directional antenna. Why choose between directional and omni-directional antennas when you can have both? This is the newest AWUS036H version from Alfa, brand new in the retail box! It includes the adapter, a 5 dBi antenna, driver CD, USB cable, and the 7 dBi directional antenna. Check directly with Alfa to verify you are getting a 100% genuine Alfa adapter and not one of those knockoffs floating around. What sets this USB device apart from other USB adapters on the market is that this has an RP-SMA antenna connector so that you can add an external antenna to boost your wireless range. This is the newest version with special anti-counterfeit hologram from Alfa!
Aim the Alfa logo side of the antenna toward the network.
Directional vs. Omin-directional antennas
The above image is not a precise scientific comparison drawing, but an illustration to show in a general sense how the two antenna types compare. Omni-directional antennas can detect signals from multiple directions. Gain is not concentrated in one particular direction. Omni-directional antennas work best when you are mobile and do not know where signals are originating. Directional antennas concentrate gain in a particular direction. While the antenna does not need to be in a perfect line of sight to the signal, it needs to be pointed in the general direction. Due to the way antennas work, directional antennas can pick up signals that are the in the opposite direction, but they will be weaker than if the antenna was pointed in that direction. As our graphic above illustrates, each antenna type has an advantage over the other. That is why it is best to have each type, so you can use the antenna that is best for your particular needs. Because directional antennas work best in the direction they are pointed, in many cases you will detect more signals overall with your omni-directional antenna, but find that your directional antenna may get stronger signal strength to signals it is aimed at, and it may also detect additional signals in the direction it is pointed, signals the omni cannot see.
The Alfa AWUS036H wireless USB adapter is a great product to use with either antenna as it has a stunning 1000mw output power. Additionally, if you are looking for a device to connect to an outdoor 2.4 GHz antenna, such as on a boat or an RV, this is a great wireless adapter to have. Because this is a USB adapter, it works on any computer (desktop or laptop) that has a USB port. In addition to working with the usual suspects (Win98SE/2000/ME/XP), this also works with Windows Vista and Windows 7, Linux (kernel 2.6.6 and later) and Macintosh (OS version 10.3 through 10.6 (10.6 use requires 32-bit kernel boot). Windows 7 drivers and Mac Snow Leopard drivers are now available at the Alfa web site (email us for a direct link). Also, we should note that our technical staff can only provide advanced support for Windows operating systems. We can provide limited support for Mac and Linux. While we will do our best to help, Linux users please remember Linux is a user supported operating system and at this time we do no have walkthroughs or guides for Linux installs.

Orders will generally be shipped the same or next day after payment is received. Periodically if we are experiencing unusually high order volume, your order may not be shipped until the second business day after payment is received, but this is not usual. We offer both UPS and US Postal methods of shipping as described below.
US 50 States + Puerto Rico: FREE US Postal First Class Mail. This includes delivery confirmation and insurance. According to the US Postal Service, First Class takes an average of 3-7 delivery days to arrive. This is not a guaranteed transit time though, it is just an average delivery time (internationally First Class can take 2-4 weeks, international buyers please read all international shipping details down below).
US 50 States + Puerto Rico: $4.00 US Postal Priority Mail. This includes delivery confirmation and insurance. According to the US Postal Service, Priority Mail takes an average of 2-3 delivery days to arrive. This is not a guaranteed transit time though, it is just an average delivery time.
US 48 States: $9.50 UPS Ground Service. This includes insurance and tracking. This rate is only for bidders in the Continental US. We do ship to Alaska/Hawaii and APO/FPO but it must go via the US Postal Service so please take a look at a US Postal option. If you need the item shipped via an expedited method like 2nd Day Air, please inquire with your zip code for rates before bidding. UPS Ground can take from 1-7 days or longer depending on your proximity to our shipping location which is in Florida. UPS can take longer than US Postal Service Priority Mail, but UPS tracking tends to be updated more often than Postal Service tracking, and UPS tracking typically posts an estimated delivery date online within 12 hours after shipping, where as US Postal Service tracking does not.
International Shipping Rates & Customs Duty Information: We ship worldwide via Standard First Class mail. This method is $11.95 ($6.95 to Canada) but can take 2-4 weeks or longer to arrive. This is primarily because the item can be held at customs for inspection for a long period.
*Import duties and taxes are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up- do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. See full International terms and details in the "Overseas" section at the bottom
GENERAL NONPAYMENT POLICY- Remember that your purchase is a contract to pay for the item. Please don't click the "Buy Now" button unless you will pay for the item. Payment is due within seven days from the end of auction. If you have a problem completing the auction, please communicate with us. Please make sure this is the item you want before buying as once an auction is won or purchased unfortunately because of nonrefundable eBay listing and feature fees we are unable to accommodate cancellations (exception- if you buy the wrong type of adapter for your computer, such as a laptop card when you meant to buy a desktop card, we can switch your order to the correct type).
At Rokland, our products are guaranteed to work for 30 days. Additionally, we want customers to be able to return products that they don't want, don't like, or did not mean to buy. That said, we do incur costs for each return, such as the nonrefundable eBay listing and feature fees. If an item returned was new, we must resell it for much less money as a used open box item. Therefore, we charge a minimal 10% restocking fee on all returned items (new and used), except for products that test defective upon receipt back here. We believe this is a fair policy as most eBay sellers do not allow for any non-defective items to be returned at all, and the ones that do typically charge a 20% restocking fee. Again, this 10% restocking fee will be applied to all returns except where a product is reported to us as defective and tests defective upon receipt back here (if the product you return is defective we can send a replacement at our expense or issue a refund of the item price, whichever you prefer). A restocking fee WILL be charged even in the event a product does not work on your PC due to incompatibility or a conflict with another piece of hardware on your system, so long as the product is not defective. We can work with you to troubleshoot the problem if you have any difficulty getting it to work. We will not charge a restocking fee if you wish to exchange a non-defective product for something else, however a new shipping charge will apply for the new shipment.
While we would certainly appreciate your business, if you feel that a restocking fee would not be acceptable in the event you want to return a non-defective product to us, please do not make the purchase. If you do wish to return a product, please contact us for an RMA number and return address instructions. In addition to the restocking fee (which will be deducted from your refund), shipping and return shipping expenses are not refundable under any circumstance unless we ship you the incorrect product. In the event we send the wrong item, we will send the correct one to you at our expense and also reimburse you for your return shipping of the incorrect product.
There are no other warranties on this auction, expressed or implied. The exception to this is if the description states there is a manufacturer's warranty. In this event the item should be returned to the manufacturer in accordance with that warranty if necessary.
