The Alfa R36 is an 802.11n router with USB port that allows you to share the long range Wi-Fi connection of an Alfa AWUS036H. If you've ever used Alfa's AWUS036H long range Wi-Fi USB receiver 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. Wouldn't it be great if you could extend the Wi-Fi range to all of your devices such as smartphones, printers, and tablets? Now you can with the new R36 router from Alfa Network, Inc.
R36 is a normal Wi-Fi router with one huge advantage- it is the only router that lets you use the AWUS036H long range Wi-Fi receiver (sold separately) as the Internet source of the router. That's right- instead of having to hook the router up to a cable or DSL broadband modem in your home, you can simply plug in an AWUS036H Wi-Fi receiver, then use a web browser to access the router's Wi-Fi signal scanner software. The router will connect to a Wi-Fi signal you choose via the AWUS036H, and then broadcast it as a new local Wi-Fi signal so that all of your devices can use it. It is just like having an AWUS036H connected to your cell phone, laptop, tablet, and desktop all at the same time!
Alfa's R36 can also be used with Alfa receiver models AWUS036EW and Tube-U(G) (for Tube-U(G) it cannot be used with the 5m USB cable that ships with Tube-U(G), it will only work with a shorter length cable).
