Thanks CallMeCrazy & WirieFolks for your reply.
I contacted ALFA support and I am very surprised that they answered promptly and each time I had a question. He told me to check the MD5 Hash Value and how it is easy to do on a Mac. It was the correct value.
He said that the new firmware only addressed the issue on 3G synchronization so it really isn't necessary for me to update at this time.
NEW QUESTION: (He didn't answer this one)
I noticed in the R36_settings.dat has
I bought this through an American company (Data Alliance who are NOT helpful in my opinion).
Will this country code setting be a problem? Does it affect the power of the unit?
ONE MORE QUESTION
When looking at the status window, it has Link Quality & Signal Strength.
Link Quality = 75%
Signal Strength = -53dBm (80%)
I know the lower the dBm the better but what does the percentage after it mean?
Also, I think I just figured out this one... On the Scan page it will give a number like this to a HotSpot
81/100 (-54 dBm)
I guess that means 81%... duh! but does it refer to signal strength or link quality...
What's the difference between link quality & signal strength. It doesn't mention noise
Hmmm.... Sorry that was more than just one question
I find this interesting so educate me, please!
