ALFA AWUS052NH Driver Software Download – Alfa AWUS052NH is a USB WiFi adapter that is made for long-distance and can be a significant improvement compared to a built-in laptop wireless card or another WiFi dongle without a remote antenna. It is dual-band and uses MIMO with speeds of 300Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 867Mpbs in the 5 GHz range. This makes it suitable for speed, but with it being a USB 2.0 adapter it will crash at 480Mbps which is the maximum USB 2.0 it can run. Most internet speeds at home range from 5-100Mbps so this should not be a barrier. The primary purpose of AWUS052NH is to distance and receive WiFi signals from as far as possible. This has made Alfa a favourite of wireless hackers as Pen Testers for many years because of its powerful chip-set and large dBi antenna that can be easily opened and new units installed depending on the scenario.

There are ways to improve this like a router with better range, WiFi range extender, or even increase the power output if the Alfa card. There are several ways to overcome the problem of wrong recipients. The primary purpose of ALFA AWUS052NH is to increase the range of acceptable signals that work very well.
