Summary: initial set up is easy. I had to call tech support to make the repeater find my wifi signal. (only 2 ft away) the power indicator lights are still not working properly. keeping my fingers crossed.
Summary: To be honest, I'm not the one you want to review. It's claim of 300' coverage is just not do. After two weeks of installation, it quit. I had to order a second one and send it in for a credit back to my account. Amazon has been amazing, hawking tech were not very helpful with thier own product.
Summary: Promptly received the Hawking HOW2R1 from Amazon. Used the Quick Setup and nothing happened. On the phone with Support for about one hour and finally determined unit was faulty. Contacted Amazon, they sent another one overnight at no charge.
Summary: The item was returned to my local Wal-Mart Store for a refund after spending two to three hours for two days on the telephone with the Hawking Technical Support where connectivity problems were never resolved.
Summary: I work in the oil field and I go to many different locations where there is wifi available. Usually I get a poor signal from about 50-60 ft. but after setting up this repeater, I get a full signal. I am very pleased with the performance and how easy it is to set up and use.
Summary: I manage an rv park and bought these to help cover the park with our wifi signal. They work just fine for this purpose and were fairly simple to program and install. The only drawback for me is the directional recieving antenna it took alittle time to find the best reception.

Summary: I recommended this product to a customer that was having issues getting a wifi signal outside of his residence based on reviews that I read here. Being a professional in the PC industry (16 years), I dismissed the reviews that detailed people having problems with the installation as "user error".
Summary: I purchased this item for our campground last summer and was instantly amazed at the boost in signal strength. Even with the buildings and tall pine trees we went from 1 bar to 5 bars. This is definitely worth the money and the seller was great to work with.
