Worked sporadically-Worked great when it did

John, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked sporadically-Worked great when it did. Finally switched to a competitor and have had no problems. Not sure if it was me, my installer, or just isn't that great a product.

Spotty coverage. Config software over simplified and perhaps unreliable.

Douglas C. Crawford "Doug", Amazon

  • Summary: I was replacing the same unit model after a lightning strike took it out. Seems like this thing is behind the times. The facility to locate the device was intermittent through the equipment it was connected to and in my opinion lacked features. Just didn't feel solid. Then once I had it all working, it had spotty coverage. Maybe a lemon all around, but based on the other review I recommended returning this unit and trying a different brand. Went to Ubiquiti.

Great outdoor router

J. Daehn, Amazon
2 October 2014
  • Summary: Easy to setup, works well. POE wouldn't work with 200' network cable, but 100' works fine. Wi-fi signal doesn't reach as far as the Hawking 300N indoor router, but it's sufficient for most uses. Have used the Hawking Outdoor Wireless Repeater that is the same design for several years in a Colorado ski town climate, and expect the same rhobustness out of this.

Great product

metrekare, Amazon
17 September 2014
  • Summary: I implanted this antenna to the roof as a repeater and it expanded the wireless zone about three fold. I can connect to my network from 200 yards away, at the end of my lawn. Great product. TIP: There is a red weather proof thick nut that you need to use for the Ethernet cable in the package. The cable can't pass through the hole. You can cut one side of the plastic bolt and insert the cable from the side. It won't effect the weatherproof qualities.

Patti L Robinson, Amazon

  • Summary: This access point can be a real problem. I have bought two. One for my home and one for work. The work one has to be rebooted constantly. And, now it is broke after a little over a year. We cannot access it through the GUI. The one at home has only needed rebooting a couple times.

Farm is now wifi connected!

Jerry, Amazon
2 March 2014
  • Summary: We bought this and other components to extend wifi to a metal and brick building 150 yards from our primary router. We are thrilled to have wifi inside the distant building with upload and download speeds that equal those originating from our primary router! An unexpected bonus benefit is that the system provides wifi access everywhere on the property where we have line of sight to the HOWABN1.
