Alfa 1000 usb long range adapter

Upgraded the laptop to one running Windows 8.1 and the Alfa 1000 will not work with 8.1. I've tried the Alfa and Realtek drivers and everything else I could think of and still no go. So, found this on Amazon, Alfa Long-Range Dual-Band AC1200 Wireless USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter w/2x 5dBi Removable External Antennas for Extreme Distance Connections - 2.4GHz 300Mbps / 5Ghz 867Mbps - USB Cradle Dock Included - Standard's 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, , and was wondering how it would stack up to the Alfa1000. Anyone have one, or if you have any workarounds on getting the 1000 to work with 8.1 that would be great. I just hate to spring for a high dollar long range adapter if I don't have to. Thanks!
Back in Annapolis waiting for October!
