AliExpress Alfa AWUS036NH
I have been using the Alfa AWUS036H USB adapter which is a great USB adapter to use with Backtrack 5 or Kali Linux, but it lacks N support. So in desperate need to upgrade to N support and Backtack 5 / Kali Linux compatibility, I ordered the new Alfa AWUSO36NH USB Wireless G / N WiFi Adapter from Amazon. I have done a video review of it for those who want to see it in action.
I did this review using Windows 7, VMware and Backtrack 5. I was very impressed by the Alfa AWUSO36NH. Windows 7 found the drivers without needing the driver disk and VMware automatically recognized it as did Backtrack 5.
When I went into monitor mode with an airmon-ng command it came up with no errors to mon0. The thing that really impressed me though was when I ran a Deauth command against my own router. It kicked the wireless connection almost immediately. My old adapter the Alfa AWUS036H would have taken multiple tries and sometimes failed all together to kick a routers wireless connection.
I really like this adapter and think it is my new favorite USB adapter to use with Backtrack / Kali Linux. I still have some playing around to do but I would definitely recommend the Alfa AWUSO36NH USB adapter to anyone wanting a great adapter to use with Backtrack 5 or Kali Linux.
