    Best Long-Range USB Wi-Fi Adaptor for Windows 10 x64?

    Further to this thread: Alfa AWUS036NH Wi-Fi Adapter Driver: Publisher MediaTek Blocked?

    I have now tried the following Alfa adaptors, using drivers from Alfa Windows 10 Blog, but no success:
    AWUS036NH A
    WUS036NHR V2
    I thought the AWUS036NHA would be the most promising because it uses native Windows 10 drivers, but it is still very flaky; it keeps vanishing from Device Manager, or saying it “cannot start” (Code 10). It also fails to work on the end of a 5m active USB lead, I just keep getting the USB connected/disconnected sounds every second.

    Can someone recommend a long-range USB Wi-Fi Adaptor that just works?

    Some handy info here, but still no official Alfa drivers:
    Windows 10 Support for Alfa Network products- updated October 8, 2015

    As this link above warns, the NHA driver gave me my first Windows 10 BSOD:

    Anyone got suggestions for other adaptors?
