Hi guys, i was just wondering if anyone have an opinion about which one is better for packet injection and wireless sniffing.

I have a alfa AWUS36H with RTL8187L. It's been my main tool for wifi.

I noticed that the hakshop sells the AWUS036NHA with atheros AR9271.

Anyone tried both and which one do you prefer? And why?

I own both adapters the AWUS36H and AWUS036NHA. The former uses a Realtek chipset and the latter uses an Atheros chipset.

Based on my experimentations, I'd recommend the c. It's much more stable than the AWUS36H.

The AWUS36H is a long range adapter, the AWUS036NHA isn't but that shouldn't hold you back. You can always upgrade the antenna to a high gain one.
