view full story

http://www.backtrack-linux.org – I recently bought the newer NH version of the AWUS036, seduced by 2000w transmit power plus N-speed data transfer. I've made a pseudo-scientific comparison; same 5 dBi antenna, HD install BT5R1 32 then BT5R2 64, controlling as many variables as possible. Internet Number of APs seen in wicd: about the same Speed connects to router (WPA2): H much quicker Ping router: Code: H    100 packets transmitted, 99 received, 1% packet loss, time 99162ms       rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.240/4.726/177.438/19.295 ms NH  100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet (HowTos)
