Good item If your trying to pick up more AP's for desktop, laptop, or do lil offensive security. In comparing this to my stock broadcom wireless card in mylaptop, and my d-link wda 2320. I have to say this is a really huge upgrade. It virtually it puts my pc right b-side the router. When my router is, kinda like up the street and around the corner. I haven't compared it to the gsky or the AWUS036H, wich i hear is really good. I'm not sure if its really pushing 2000w. but, -2000w's just sounds kinda of creepy, may i suggest 100ft extension cable.
ps the 9db antenna, is a stoney jackson! I can say makes a good miniature pool stick.
The major downside was the extra large 9db aerial which actually seems to work against you and reduces the signal strength as against the normal 5db aerial. The large aerial also makes the adapter unstable and unable to stand on the desk without being supported. There was no point in purchasing the larger aerial.
