Wi-Fire Mac 300
I picked up a hField wifi adaptor, the short review: it works great. On a Mac (Leopard) or PC (Vista support now) it greatly increasing the number and quality of Wi-Fi sites I am able to connect to, it’s basically a better USB based directional Wi-Fi adaptor that can get you a signal up to 1,000 feet away. I’m heading out for a few trips and will likely need to weez some Wi-Fi here and there so in addition to an EVDO card I’m hoping in a foreign land this will work out – Link & a couple photos.

    Does that thing have a FCC ID number? If it does let us know so we can head over to the FCC’s website and view the internal photos and other tidbits.

    I was going to ask you to crack it open and show us the guts. In light of your travel plans, beakmyn’s request seems more sensible.

    I’m using a USB adapter with a DIY corner reflector. Other projects here and here.

    Oh, it looks like hField only has the one product anyway. It was easy enough to find the FCC ID with the FCC’s website.

    It is UIL-HFWFG10

    So it’s a USB adapter with a u.fl pigtail to a 10dBi Yagi
    No magic really just a high gain directional antenna.

    Here is what their FCC license says:

    Power Output listed is Conducted. The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 20 cm from all persons and must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. End-users and installers must be provided with antenna installation instructions and transmitter operating conditions for satisfying RF exposure compliance.

    The power output is 0.041 watts at 2.412 GHz.
