Good value for simple wifi needs

Eric, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Highs: Good deal for a 802.11ac AP. Numerous extra ethernet ports allow for wireless bridging many devices. Simple configuration makes it a good fit for home/soho users. Lows: Web interface lacks features other APs have.

Absolutely Aweful

D. Archer, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: I recently purchase two of the Hawking HD45B Access Point units and found them to both be defective by design. Both units would lock up, lose settings and require a complete "factory default" reset in order to log back into the device again after changing any settings. Very frustrating when attempting to deploy without using the default settings.

Product simply did not work, technical support was rude/ not helpful and return policy ridiculous

A reader "reader in boston", Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: This product did not work at all, technical support was both rude and unhelpful and the return policy is truly ridiculous. Let me save you the time and frustration, DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM HAWKING. I am throwing my 2 access points and extender from hawking in the garbage (where they belong) and will look for replacements from another company.

Exactly What I Wanted

Greg DiSisto, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: This is not a router, it is an Access Point which allows me to add Wi-Fi (dual band simultaneous) to my existing network. It does so with relative ease and has been very reliable so far.

Tec Support ??

Mr Phil, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: From the start the HD45B had issues. I contacted Tec support and got marginal function after a long and difficult session. Informed by Tec guy that my signal was marginal and to purchase optional antennas. Contacted support by email, several sessions of answering their questions later they sent me a link to their retail webpage. Instructions were to browse their website and find the optional antenna I need. REALLY?

Access point only

Handyman, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: This unit can not be used as wireless range extender by itself. It either has to be hard wired into the network to broadcast WiFi or everything has to be hard wired into the unit for it to be an access point. The only way this can be setup to extend the range of a wireless signal (wireless into the unit with wired or wireless out) is if you have 2 of these units talking to each other. It does not extend the range of a wireless router.

A solid, high performance AP

Jason Buberel, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • Summary: I have one of these in my home office, and have it paired with the Hawking HD45X range-extending WiFi Bridge Hawking Technology Hi-Gain Dual-Band Wireless-N Bridge (HD45X) . The combination of these two devices gives me full-bar coverage throughout my entire house. The ability to use the 5ghz band helps avoid microwave oven interference, which is often a problem for WiFi signals using the 2.4ghz band.
