2013-07-13, 10:27
Hello everyone, I decided to join after months of reading the forums I have successfully pen-tested my system with Kali Linux since day 1 on my Asus RT-N56U plenty of times in b/g mode and Wps Mode. I currently own the a Alfa 036H and I want to buy another that supports Injection as well as True Wireless N
I have narrowed it down to 3 adapters. My objective is to obtain a handshake from my Asus @ 5ghz band something my 036H isn't capable of detecting this band, I am leaning towards the awuso51nh because in the description it supports up to 5.8 ghz my only problem is the 500mw sounds weak compared to 1000mw from my current 036H I would love some experience feedback and suggestions also max distance if possible sorry if im asking for alot but I'm a Overclocker (.net) and we take it to the extremes. Thank you in advance.
