    Hi there,

    I've been updating the Compat-wireless Driver as detailed above but hit a problem in Airodump-ng. Once I've updated the Drivers I get 20-30dbm from the 036NH and can place the card into monitor mode, however starting Airodump with mon0 I see no access points at all (not even my own) but airodump-ng does indicate that it is scanning through the channels.

    Has anyone else encountered this problem with the 036NH? Any nudges in the right direction would be helpful

    This might sound simple, but try plugging the adaptor in after your machine/VM is turned on.

    here is my awus036nh modded with a heatsink (I am going to build a custom case for it):

    that coax cable leads to a 15dbi directional antenna, I also have 9dbi omnidirectional antenna

    I am going to test the power on the oscilloscope
    i'll like to see the results from the test with the oscilloscope on the awus036NH
    cause till this moment i think the awus036H perform better, so i hope your results are coming soon.

    I have written a aircracking tutorial on my own forum:
    http://hacking-library.com/forum/vie...284&p=550#p550

    scroll down to the section "Override regulatory domain restrictions" if you want to have max tx-power
    you can use other info as reference.
