AWUS036H on a Dell 8600, possible?
Does anyone know if the Alfa dual USB 500mw card works on a Dell 8600?
I was tempted to pick one up but it uses 2 USB ports and I know Dell's don't have the highest power output on their USB ports, I'd hate for it to not work.
Anyone else got this combo?
Yes it works fine with my dell but you will notice the batery lasting 15 min less than usual lol. The device also works with just 1 of the usb plugs in but you only get the performance of a normal wifi adaptor
Anyone else have any comments?
Yes I have the dell 8600 and it works fine. I have never seen any differance in perfromance with any usb device between my Dell, Packard-Bell and Main PC.
It really will be no problem for you as long as your battery is fully charged or running from power adaptor.
I have 2 of these AWUS036H USB Adaptors and they work great I wouldn't use anything else unill they release a more powerfull one if they ever do.

Anyone know if these parts work together?
I'm trying to price up some stuff from George Hardesty on ebay but I wanna be sure all the RP-SMA stuff is compatibile
"Antenna 9dbi OMNI Wireless Aerial RP-SMA fits PCI card"
Item # 290087361162
Does it fit into "MAGNETIC BASE for ANTENNA RP-SMA WIRELESS PIGTAIL CABLE" 290146061634
Will the base cause any interference? Is that the intended purpose of this base and antenna?

"USB Wireless 802.11G Adapter Card w RP-SMA Antenna Jack" 290099248367
Do all these work together, do all 5 work together?
Ok well I've ordered it all anyhow to see how it goes, hopefully works well
Yes all of what you have ordered there should fit fine. I have that very 9dbi antenna plugged straight into the alfa. I have to hold it down with bluetac though as its massive and the alfa is not wieghty enouhg to anchor it down. That mag mount would obviously fix that though
