Thanks! What was the black Alfa then? Curious as to what the difference between the two are.

Thanks for the GPS model. It's like 30 bucks.

Just a note on the GPS if you want to use it for something like streets and trips you will need a separate program. Read the comments on the dealextreme site.

The black Alfa is a AWUS036E. You can google for the differences.

There is no much velcro needed it actually hold the things really tied to the cover of my eee.

On my picture it was a 9dbi antenna with the AWUS036H 1000mW.

I will also get the new Alfa with WLAN N-draft and 5Ghz capability (AWUS050NH). It will join my first Alfa as well as my gps-stick (thanks for the idea Seshan).

If you need a short USB-cable just get a normal one (I think it's about 1m) and cut out what you don't need and then solder it together.

@Seashan: Are you pleased with your ND-100? Because my Navilock NL-454US is really bad, even my cell phone gets better and faster gps fixes :blink:

The AWUS050NH does not work well with back track, just so you know.

The ND-100 has been great for me, it has a fast lock on and it's accurate. You will need some 3rd party software depending on what you want to use it for.

As for velcrow, I got these half inch circles from the dollar store and they work great, these cards are really light and it does not take much to hold them on.

Well for a good/better WLAN-Connection you always need two strong ends, so it don't really helps having a nice Alfa if your router only has a 2dbi antenna or whatever. So the improvement is not that great because my accesspoint is a weak and old piece of hardware ...

Same thing if you wan't to use aircrack-ng or whatever, you have to be in range of the accesspoint.

But if you just want some passive wardriving, such a big antenna is a great thing to have. But i haven't compared the 5dbi vs. my 9dbi antenna yet, because here isn't mutch wifi traffic around (I'm living in a smalle village).

I bought the alfa and the 9dbi antenna in a bundle so it wasn't that expensive, but i guess i wouldn't need such a big antenna because most accesspoints / routers don't offer the same power as I'm now doing.
