Hey guys,,, just wanna say this is the best carpc forum that I leanrne alot from it and hoping to lear more & more.
Just wondering have you guys seen this awesome new WIFI kit :
Ultimate Mobile WiFi Kit (( Sanao wifi card with radiolabs special antenna
(( 200mW output and 8dB gain!! The highest gain antenna and notebook card package, without using an amplifier. The RadioLabs Ultimate Mobile Wifi kit is perfect for the WiFi Warrior ))
here is the link and the whole story ::
It's a nice package and one of the best so please any comments !!
200mW USB external for those without a PCMCIA (not sure what the gain is, but it uses an external antenna as well)... used this puppy in Iraq and it worked very well... and it's only 60 bucks!
Im in the middle of ordering my wifi gear and i was planning to order this antenna...
and run it via this usb adapter.
Ill also need to get a N connector > RP-SMA adapter. The antenna is almost 2m tall but I can make a rear end mounting bracket for it. The only problem I see is the antenna not getting enough power from the usb port to get the full 15db gain. Can anyone comment on this?
to answer my own question, a usb port has a max output of 500ma. When transfered to antenna gain that will support up to 27db. So shes sweet to go.
how did you get that? yes, a USB port can supply 500ma of power to a USB device, but that does not neccisarily (sp?) mean that the radio itself can/is broadcasting at 500mw. Most wifi cards don't put out anywhere near 500mw. I'd say most of them transmit between 25 and 100mw. However, these oddball cards ya'll are finding do transmit more power, which is cool. Just remember that in the US, max power is 4 watts...if you want to stay legal
