I hope most of you guys will be having this product for wifi pentesting, How you guys bought it. How much did it cost including the shipping charges,

Alfa's Data-Alliance store says product cost's 25$ and shipping to INDIA cost another 30$,TBH i'm reluctant to pay such a huge shipping charge which is higher than the product's cost. is there any alternative way :eek:

Me,Punter and few others here got it from Dubai some 3-4 yrs back ...dont waste ur time and money importing it.....I searched around for this in Middle East and Dubai seems to be the only place where I could get it and tht too in selected hardware shops with a known common friend of ours.

I got 3 when I went last time,so look out for someone who is travelling to Dubai.

Amazing product am sure Punter will have more to say about it.

@AnArKI: yeah, Richie street aka THe Electronic Heaven of CHennaI.. sadly most of the shops are having the following models only Belkin n150, Netgear WNA1100, Iball ib-wua150n, CiscoWUSB100..

@41.w4r10r
Really a good news, late though as i ended up spending 2400rs on ebay, not a bigdeal. who doesn't wants the taste of neighbour's PACKETS :-)

Contacted the above mentioned retailer in India but no response from that person. On the official website they don't mention anything about the Alfa Product Brand.

Here's the reply from md_arshad82@rediffmail.com:


Hi,

We don't retail, if you need a big quantity then we can proceed further.

Thanks

This info might help someone looking forward to purchase this USB Wi-Fi Adapter from the Distributors in India.

Hey guys,

I was also looking for ALFA AWUS036H 1000mW and looks like i've found a gr8 deal for the same.

It costs $30 in total which at current rate translates to Rupees 1421, includes shipping cost. Ships directly from Hongkong.

I hope its contains the same chip as advertised on ebay which is RTL8187L and the
product is from Taiwan not from China.

I am gonna order it right now.

If you need any information regarding this contact my email i.e. justin.jabber [a.t.] yahoo.com.

You can also buy the same from me as m ordering in bulk.
M from Delhi btw.

Thanks,
Neel

Of course yes until it's been locked for some reason. You could send personal messages to members you think who could render some help as they might miss your post if not visiting forum regularly.

AFAIK - All alfa cards would work on windows. Some would not work on linux. This particular one works on Both

Hello,

I want to opt for a wireless adapter for Penetration Testing coupled with Backtrack 5 R3. I have read through ton of materials, forums and websites but unable to come to a conclusion. Can you suggest a dual band (2.4 and 5ghz) Wi-Fi USB card, having spent ages trawling Google and other forums etc I would be seriously grateful.

If not please suggest me any one of the below mentioned cards…..

Below are my choices :

AWUS036NHR - 802.11b/g/n 2W Long-Rang USB Adapter
Want to buy this one but I am really confused if this works fine out of the Box with Backtrack 5 R3.

AWUS036H (rtl8187, r8187)
I Know that this works perfectly with backtrack 5 R3 but it does not include n only supports b and g... so i am less inclined towards this one.

AWUS036NH (Ralink RT2870/3070)
