    Hi,
    i want to buy a new wifi stick which should have much power and range. I want to use it mostly under Windows 7/8 and sometimes linux with backtrack os or xiaopan os. I'm living in Germany so it should have the function to unlock the maximum power of it, if possible in windows. I have found mainly three different chip types/sticks.

    AWUS036NHA
    Auslinx RTL8191SU (http://www.yatow.de/WLAN-Adapter-US...-USB-Adapter-RTL8191SU-mit-LNA-300Mbit-s.html9
    3070L

    Now i don't know which one i should take. I've heard that the Auslinx products are way better than the Alfa but i'm not entirely sure about that.

    Yep, the RTL8188/8191/8192 SU version is so dificult to put it on monitor mode, even injection is not guaranteed... The working versions of that chipsets is the RU.
    so i think you must go for the AWUS036NHA :)

    And the 3070 is this one better and is there a version to unlock the full power with the driver software in windows?

    The RT3070 is a Ralink chipset, i have a TP Link card with that chipset working on windows 7, it has a very good sensibility with the latest Ralink drivers, better than the TP Link drivers, and work great with Xiaopan
