just got this in the mail today trying to get a range of a block hope it will work out good.
it is a ralink 2070 and was only 9.78 free shipping and took 2 days to show up in also includes the antenna.
here is the link, http://www.tmart.com/80211N-150Mbps-Wireless-Network-Ad...
i was also thinking on adding it to a dish and seeing how that will work.
here are some pictures.
i will keep a update on how well it works.

A block is way too far for any wireless adapter!
A wifi signal can travel about 30m (100ft) with no interferance.

ok update, using this wireless adapter i can get about a block range with a parabolic dish hooked up to it and half without the dish.
signal status as of now is.
half block range.
tansmit receive

link speed 48.0 Mbps 24.0 Mbps

throughput 0.000 kbps 44.125 kbps

link quality 79 % signal strength is -77 dbm

have gotten really good download speeds 20min to download a full movie.

the adapter is also 100% compatable with linux backtrack 5 r3.

it works 100% and is totaly worth the 10 dollar price.
