GSKY HIGH POWER 500mW WIRELESS USB ADAPTER
Due to the popularity received by GSKY (which started as a low-price alternative to the then costly ALFA), recently few other brands of USB wifi adapters which also incorporate Realtek Backtrack compatible chipset have appeared in the market, however, after careful study and comparison, we decide to stick to the original GSKY, for its better built quality and stability. On the longer antenna offered by some packages/brands which claimed to be of very high gain, if you trust our words, those do not give much difference (if it give any difference at all, we see none in our tests) as compared to the 5dBi antenna in GSKY package, if you want to further boost the signal strength of the already strong GSKY, advisable to go for a 7dbi D-Link antenna, or if budget allowed, a wifi signal amplifier, please refer to our full listing for those items.
For most people, ths adapter is famous for WEP keys/passwords "discovery", while yes, it is compatible with the Backtrack software for that purpose, it has more unique features and advantages than just the cracking job. One of which is it is USB based and has an RP-SMA antenna connector so that you can add an external antenna to boost your wireless range. And to make things better, by itself it already has a stunning 500mw output power, imagine the range that it covers if coupled with a decent high-gain antenna.
So if you are looking for a device to connect to an outdoor 2.4 GHz antenna, such as on a boat or an RV, this is a perfect solution. Because this is a USB adapter, it works on any computer (desktop or laptop) that has a USB port. In addition to working with the usual Win98SE/200/ME/XP/Vista/Windows 7, this also works with Linux (kernel 2.6.6 and later) and Macintosh (OS version 10.4 and 10.5).
This adapter has a stunning 500mw output power. That's 1/2 watt. That's more than 2x the output power of the Senao USB 200mw adapters w/ RP-SMA connector.
As some new laptops from manufacturers like Dell and HP no longer include a PCMCIA card slot. Up until now if you bought or planned to buy one of these laptops, there would be no way for you to get a wireless connection option with an external antenna connector. This has all changed with this kit we are offering. This will work on any PC with a USB port (laptop or desktop) and is especially ideal for folks whose laptops do not have a PCMCIA slot who need a long range wireless solution! We believe that in the coming years PCMCIA cards will be a thing of the past. So even if your laptop has a slot, why not buy this kit- USB is the wave of the future and then you will be able to use this kit on any laptop you might purchase down the road.

Hi, it doesn't matter Unifi or Streamyx, it can be detected as long as the broadband is connected to 802.11g compliance wifi - almost all wifi are as it is the most commonly and widely used standard - and within the range.
Hi bro, to connect to your wifi AP, just plug in the GSKY and let the driver installed automatically in Win7, after which, right click the network icon at the bottom right corner, you will see the available networks, just left click on your network, select "connect" and follow the on-screen instruction, i.e. to key in your password if necessary.
Wifi range influenced by factors like building structure, wall thickness, interference etc, no fixed rule to determine. In most cases, you will get additional signal strength using this adapter compared to your laptop build-in card, typically add 1 to 3 bars under the windows measurement. It is no point to talk about maximum distance as that will be theoretical, people might tell you 2km or 3 km, it is just like gauging one's life span by telling human can live to a maximum of 122 years :)
Made in China, some people try to claim taiwan made because the Realtek chipset is made in Taiwan, and printed TAIWAN on the chip. To us, made in where does not matter as long as the quality and performance is good.
