This is the real, authentic Atheros chip and lives up to it's reputation.
This is the real thing. Comes with hologram sticker on the back, device manager reports it as an Atheros chip. Enters "promiscuous mode" like it's supposed to. Kali Linux has drivers for it and it installs normally. Also works well with Win 7 64-bit. Gets significantly better reception than say for example my Samsung cell phone, so the reports about it's ability to pick up weaker transmissions are apparently true. Has a convenient clip. Everything worked great until this morning when I discovered the cans had knocked it off the window and into a bucket of wash water I stupidly left on the floor immediately below. It's NOT waterproof.
I'm immediately buying another one to replace the one the cats destroyed. Cats are a-holes. This is a good wireless adapter. If anyone wants a wireless adapter, this is a good one to get, and if anyone wants a cat I have several I'm giving away for free. They're good for pets or food; whichever you prefer.Read full review
