    Default Help with AWUS036H Installation

    Hello All,

    I have researched the Forums on the AWUS036H product and cannot find a detailed procedure on the installation of the AWUS036H product.

    Some items refer to using pccardctl and scanpci in installing, I cannot even find the scanpci file to run! One item claims this the AWUS036H is "plug and play".

    My hardware:

    Dell Mini 9 Inspiron 910

    My Broadcom 4312 pci wireless card is working fine, but I want a greater range with the AWUS036H product.

    Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

    Backtrack 4 has all the drivers required for the AWUS036H to work, you don't need to install any.

    sickness,

    Thank you for your response.

    Doesn't the Broadcom 4312 driver need to be "removed"?

    If so, what's the procedure?

    If not, how does one "make" the AWUS036H the primary wireless card?


    Thanks!

    BT3 is no longer supported.

    You plug it in and it should be recognized, are you running BT in a virtual environment ? Does it get detected on lsusb ?

    Default AW: Help with AWUS036H Installation

    Tried it today on a brand new installation of BT4 R2 and an Alfa036H.

    It's been working flawless. Just plug in the adapter.

    Run lsusb and it should show one entry in the list for an Realtek device. That's the Alfa.
