Alfa R36A supports Alfa AWUS036NH, AWUS036NEH, Tube-U(N) and UBDo-nt8.
This is a 2.4 Ghz-only device. It does not receive 5 GHz signals. This is done to maximize range. The FCC has more stringent power limits for dual band 5 GHz capable devices, therefore they have less max power and shorter range. Any home network or RV park that offers Wi-Fi will have a 2.4 Ghz signal. Most don’t even offer a 5 Ghz signal, but those that do will also offer 2.4 GHz. If you’ve ever used Alfa’s AWUS036NH WiFi adapter with your computer, then you know it can pull in signals much further than standard on-board Wi-Fi cards built in to today’s laptops. With Alfa R36A you can extend the Wi-Fi range to all of your devices such as smartphones, printers, and tablets.
The R36A router will connect to a Wi-Fi signal you choose via the AWUS036NH/NEH or Tube-N/UBDo-nt8, and then broadcast it as a new local Wi-Fi signal so that all of your devices can use it.
How it works:
To use this device to share a Wi-Fi signal, you will also need an AWUS036NH or other compatible Alfa Wi-Fi adapter listed above which is sold separately (R36A can also be used as a standalone travel router, or with a 3G USB dongle from the supported model list). Then simply connect your computer to the R36A via ethernet cable for a one-time configuration and setup. Connect the AWUS036NH to the R36A, and using Wi-Fi scanning software built-into the R36A, you can scan for and connect to available wireless networks in your area. Once the R36A has connected to a network, you will be prompted to name and password protect your own new local Wi-Fi network, offering any device within a few hundred feet a strong Wi-Fi connection.
