    Default Need USB wireless adapter with antena connection

    So im usng BT4 mostly for wireless testing, i been using the ALFA Networks AWUS036H for a while and it works perfect, but it kinda annoying the size is a bit to big... So i want to get a USB (flash drive style) wireless adapter.

    Any of you has experience with this adapter: Newegg.com - Rosewill RNX-G1 IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Wireless Black Dongle with External 2dBi SMA Antenna Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, WPA, WPA2

    how good the range is? how good is its injection??

    This was reviewed on the website you quoted...

    Cons: Overheats. Loses signal quite often when compared to my dells with built in Wifi using 802g. I think the overheating causes the unit to lose signal or degrade signal. Sometimes its just plain weak and doesnt operate fast on startup.

    Other Thoughts: I have many devices that use Wireless and never have a problem with my other 2 laptops. They both have built in WiFi and never give me a problem. My Dells range around 90-95% of total bandwidth compared to this device that gets around 10% or less of total bandwidth. This device is weak but shows a strong signal in windows at 54mbps. Buy a better and more experienced product like a Dlink or Linksys.

    -if it overheats too much dont bother getting it unless your prepared to modify it to cool it down
    -the person that posted this compares it to other wifi cards...if an internal card is performing better than an external card with a 2bdi antenna..
    - should also note that db > dbi and you will notice the difference when you compare the two
