Description Technical Specs
 
Learning SeriesThe Alfa High Power Desktop Antenna was the best all-round portable WiFi booster from our recent Product Testing Review. When compared to the built-in WiFi of our Sony Vaio, the Alfa performed at about 3 - 6x the throughout, and the manufacturers claim up to a mile range although we haven't tested that yet. The beauty of this booster is it's size and versatility. The unit comes with a 6" folding and swivel antenna that is connected via a standard RP-SMA connector. That means that is you need more range, you can connect the unit to an larger antenna such as the TechnoRV Yagi Antenna. In our testing however, we used the standard antenna with the unit mounted in the window holder and got excellent results.

Having difficulty installing the driver from the CD?
If you're experiencing difficulty either with the mini-CD or during the driver installation, you should try downloading the latest driver. Simply click the operating system that you have below. Your browser will download a file containing a Setup file to install the driver.

Drivers: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS (10..4 and 10.5). The booster is compatible with Windows 8, but the installation CD isn't. We have an article on our blog showing how to manually install the driver on Windows8.

The Alfa uses a RealTek driver which does not support 64-bit on Mac OS. This means that support on Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion) is limited to systems that boot the 32-bit Kernel. If you are not sure, contact me for instructions on how to check if your system is booting 32-bit.

If you still have difficulty or would just like some help, feel free to give me a call (866-324-7915) or email me.

Phone & Internet Connectivity December 15, 2014
Reviewer: Steve Martin from Memphis, TN United States  
I called when frustrated because of poor phone and internet connectivity. Phil was most helpful, suggesting several products that have solved my issues. Most were easily installed, even by a rather non technical person. And with a single phone call, Phil talked me through a series of steps that completed my project. All my connectivity issues are resolved.

I am most satisfied with the products and service provided by TechnoRV.

Alfa High Power Desktop Wifi Antenna November 17, 2014
Reviewer: John Lance from Casa Grande, AZ United States  
I'm using an Asus Laptop and have fought hooking up to campground Wifi connections forever. Talked to Phil and he suggested the Alfa. WOW!!!! Instead of not hooking up inside my 5th Wheel, I now have the option of six antennas and pick the one with the most power. I hook up every time I have logged on to the computer. I am so happy that Phil pointed me in this direction. I would recommend this for anyone having trouble connecting to Wifi signals.  Simple instructions and very easy to use. Thanks again Phil.
