Suggest a strong usb wifi card with free linux drivers


Hello all,

I am desperately looking for a usb wifi card with free linux drivers that would have > 20 dbm txpower and at least 5dbi antenna. Cards like ASUS-N14 or TL-WN8200ND, but with free linux drivers.

All the suggestions that I have come up until now from online search suggest weak cards (max 18dbm), and ALFA AWUS036H that I already have, which misfunctions(disconnects automatically).

I am aware of the chipset compatibility lists that exist online, but I have already spent a day cross-matching (Model -> Chipset -> Drivers) without any luck.

Any thoughts?

I second the above. I got a USB wireless card from ThinkPenguin and it worked like a charm.
