Hi gang,

I've recently bought what I believed to be an Alfa AWUS036NH from AliExpress and upon arrival I have some doubts if the product is genuine. Firstly it arrived in a blank cardboard box, but did have a mini driver CD. There is no suction cup on the bottom but there is product information and when viewing the adapter within Linux it appears with a RaLink driver when I was expected to see the word Alfa within there somewhere. I've attached some images and apologise for the blur but I'm hoping you guys could help me out. I'm happy to provide any other information if needed but I'd like to confirm the authenticity of this ASAP so that I could dispute the sale.

Any replies are appreciated.
