Alfa AWUS050NH USB
Since no one on this forum has posted anything about the new Alfa AWUS050NH, I'll ask away. I read RE@LITY's post about the Alfa AWUS036-S and he mentioned it was a good one to get, but I was reading up on some of the latest news and found that the new Alfa AWUS050NH came out this month. Does anyone recommend this one?
Will it work with backtrack 3 or 4 and will it do injections and will it work with VM Ware? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It would really help us to answer this if you provided all the specs of this card.
I seriously doubt anyone is going to spend time doing the grunt work getting that info just so as they can answer your question.
link to the manufacturers datasheet
all would be helpful
I hope this helps.

Does this mean I cannot use this usb card with my 24dBi yagi antenna? Someone please let me know about this.
you can use the card with 24dbi yagi, but only in 2.4ghz mode !!
if you want to use 5ghz mode, you need a new 5ghz antenna !!! and these are much more expensive, because a 5ghz antenna is not easy to make in the backyard .... like most 2.4ghz antennas available ...
The link below was the yagi antenna I was going to get but I wanted to know if its possible to switch their usb card and replace it with the AWUS050NH.

Again, sorry for so many questions, I just want to make sure I get the right equipment the first time.
is this card compatible now ?
Somebody already tested it ?
I heard it runs in backtrack 3...but I do not know the results? Like is it really good compared to others?
I hope someone has one of these to tell us.
perhaps interesting ....both topics same subject ...but perhaps u don't have seen it
replace xx with tt and remove space ....
