    Hi Guys,
    I bought the http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.35688 "Dragon" wifi adapter.
    I cannot get the driver to install. I put the disc in, I need to go to "My Computer"
    to read the disc, all the files show. I click on setup.exe and nothing happens. It doesn't open the file.
    Any recommendations? Help!

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Hi,

    I wanted to let you guy's know I cancelled my order for the cheap alfa alternative. I waited 40 day's and nobody knew where the thing was.
    So, I ordered an alfa awus036h and i must say, AWESOME!
    Only in Windows 7 I already receive about 30! Very strong signals.
    I tested my new alfa also in BackTrack, but the terminal couldn't handle the amount of AP's in the screen! The windows in my home are closed, I could not yet imagine what I will see when I hang this beast outside. All the signals are very strong. I have about 4 usb adapters and what the alfa does can't be compared to all my other adapters.

    edit: I know see 25 AP's only in windows with the worst signal strenght 4 bars!
    edit2: did a check on an AP and the name of the AP is the last name from someone in my neighberhood, I googled them, 250 meters away, signal strenght 5 bars! AWESOME! And the alfa is in my house, not even outside my room window!
