Just as an aside.... If you are trying to install a secondary antenna or extender via USB or other wired connection.... If you cannot establish proper function of the device.... The problem may be caused by your anit-virus and or firewall software.

When I was installing mine....the anti-virus/firewall software I use ("Vipre") did not like the antenna software. I had to uninstall the Vipre, install the antenna and re-install Vipre.... Everything was fine after that.

Soooo, I am quoting my own message!
I had to relocate my antenna due to my new bridge enclosure. Instead of doing that I decieded to give the Alfa AWUS036NHR a shot. It beats the heck out of my other antenna and I can just sit it inside the boat on the table. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MEGA-Alfa-AW...item1e6dcb368f
