The antenna does a good job for point-to-point bridging applications

David Hall, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: The antenna does a good job for point-to-point bridging applications. I've used it in several locations with varying distances and elevations. I would suggest that the product description be changed, it does not include a RP-TNC connector required by Cisco bridge AP's.

Sends a 4 bar signal 300 feet away

Luigi, Amazon
20 May 2014
  • Summary: I used the antenna to send a wify signal to a small cottage that was 300 feet away from the TP-LINK TL-WR841 HP router I attached it to one of the two antenna ports on the router. It was easy to setup and it worked great. The signal at the cottage went from zero bars to 4 bars. I then added the Hawking HSB2 signal booster and I now get 5 bars at the cottage.

Product exceeds expectations!

Jerry, Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: We bought this and other components to attempt to extend wifi to a metal and brick building 150 yards from our original router. We are thrilled to have wifi inside the distant building with upload and download speeds that equal those originating from our primary router! As a precautionary approach, I did not attempt the initial configuration myself; rather, I called Hawking tech support. I am likewise thrilled by the assistance provided!

Good system, but signal booster needed for signal strength

David B., Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I needed an internet connection in my workshop which is 300 feet from my house. I had no signal at the shop from my Cisco wireless n router from the house. I set up the system using a Linksys access point feeding signal from the router to the Hawking antenna on the house. The shop has identical antenna and Linksys access point. This gave very low signal strength and speed. I found EnGenius Network Device EUB9603H USB Adapter 150Mbps 600mW 802.11b/g/n.

Requires Line-of-site to work

John Berry, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Using these to save money on the more expensive all-in-one wireless outdoor bridges. With the right coax, and a PC with an antenna connection, bridging a connection does work. The biggest issues with this design, is that the signal seems to "bounce" off of other metal structures, such as building, trucks, trains... So LINE-OF-SIGHT is critical using these high-gain antennas.

Works exactly as avertised!!

Jeff, Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: Easy to set up and once connected expanded coverage to a whooping 200ft. That's right, not a typo, 200 Feet! Sets up in about 15 minutes. It's been operating right at a month or so now and hasn't had a single instance that required a reboot or power reset on any of the hawker products or connected devices. When used with a Hawker router extender you just can't screw up the setup, step by step instructions with pictures!! A little more money, but worth every penny!
