Flawless neighborhood solution

PennyPincherP, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: My extended family shares broadband over 3 houses using bridges/routers. The most distant (<750') had a poor/slow link until I installed this antenna. Speedtest became comparable to hardwired. This product is directional and only appropriate for point to point applications.

Amazing...

Victor Choy, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: My house floorplan is extremely spunky. That also means that setting up my WiFi network was going to be extremely difficult. Up until the point that I bought this antenna, I spent a total of $400 trying to get all my signal strength bars up to max, but rather, ended up getting mediocre connectivity,...

Combine this with a 500 or 1000 mw adapter from alfa network

Luis Arteaga, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: i have been using this antenna with a alfa adapter with the Realtek 8187 chipset, the combination is the most powerful in the market, you not only have good reception but also enough power to get back to the sender of the signal.

Ulanday is right

unwind, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Thanks Mr. Ulanday for your reverse-engineering. I agree with your assessment of this antenna. My experience: I was trying to get a good signal over a 250 ft span between buildings. I had a clear shot window-to-window and used a Belkin F5D7230 range extender with this antenna.

This thing is awesome !

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I have no idea what the person writing the review above was talking about. I had exactly the opposite experience with both products. I put the HAI15SC on a D-Link DI-624 802.11 G/B wireless router and saw a huge improvement !!

Don't believe the box for a minute...

Pinny, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I got this this antenna to attatch to my pcmcia orinoco wifi card (a MC->RP-SMA adapter, obtained off ebay, was required) in my laptop. The antenna cost me $30 after mail in rebates at CompUSA.

Excellent Results...if you know what you are doing

The Critic, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this antenna and got a drastic increase in signal strength & range, but I still initially had issues despite the high signal strength. The trick is, now that you've boosted the router strength, you may need to boost the strength of the client device, in my case, a laptop.

pay no attention

B. Goodyear, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Pay no attention to the negative reviews of this product. RF links are all about math and the gain of this antenna produces a directed signal that is hundreds of times stronger that what you get out of one of those standard wifi omni antennas.

Excellent directional range extender

C. Nekritz, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Granted I didn't use the flimsy suction cups but drilled and attached this directly to a fence post. This, as well as a low-loss cable I had to buy from another site (note to all, Amazon does NOT sell a wire that will go from the back of a standard WiFi router, aka LinkSys, Netgear, et. al.

Rip it apart!

desolder, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a "deconstructive" review of Hawking's corner reflector. Basically I took it apart so you don't have to! BTW - I am an RF engineer, so I apologize if it gets too technical. First let me provide a explanation of what a "corner reflector antenna" is.
