Topic: Wireless adapter Alfa AWUS036H

Just got it installed yesterday. This little sucker rocks. The following comparison tests are based on airodump-ng power ratings. All samples approx. 100 feet (30 metres) from Access Point:

Presario w/built-in                              15                     
Atheros chipset
(no ext. antenna)

Compaq Evo N600c                           34
w/Linksys WGUSB
& rubber ducky

Evo N600c                                        120
w/Alfa & rubber ducky

Evo N600C                                        125
w/Alfa & Hawking
directional ext. ant

Evo N600c                                         132
w/Super directional

Still working on installing Backtrack on the Evo.  Some problems partitioning but I think this is due to 4,000 cylinders on the drive and should solve it soon.  Interestingly, while the drivers from Taiwan compiled and worked fine, aircrack-ng would NOT show power.  But with the Backtrack 2 c/d, everything worked perfectly.
