    A "USB" port out 2500 mw maximum ...
    5800mW for, it should be plugged into port 3 "USB" lol
    In addition, 58dBi, with this kind of antenna it is impossible ...
    Look at the size of a grid of 24 dBi at AIRGRID and your little yagi, it is totally IMPOSSIBLE to get to this level!

    Come on, be a little serious!

    $35 for some unknown card & unknown antenna is a ripoff. My card + pole antenna +14dbi panel was $32. My card is plugged in two USB ports.

    Still not worth $35. You can get Kasens or Wifisky for $17-18.

    I just purchased another Kasens G9000 this time with the RT3070 chip for $15 :).

    hey jamal,
    after using it for a mounth.(by the way i bought it for 180dh/21.5$)
    it's good for packet injection,like alfa.
    same range as alfa(but it's unstabale, some wifi's come and go).
    verry verry slow speed if the router is far.
    even an LB-link(5dbi) is better at speed than it.
    the antenna is 12dbi, but it's weakend by the RP-SMA cable,so it's like 9dbi to 8dbi.

    With these card's the cable between cantena and card is usually p*ss poor, either shorten cable or replace with decent cable or just add a rp-sma female to the cantena and do away with the cable "screw the card directly into antenna".

    These wifi cards are very well known to be fake, cable length doesn't really matter, what matters is that LIN FOX is a chinese low class brand. To get the best out of it, you'll have to replace the antenna that is connected to this chipset ( usually looks like a lamp...fake edition lol)
    By a good quality one and there you go:)
