Summary: I was unable to use this item with the Bell Turbo Hub. The hub & booster have different connection types which are not compatible. Great service from Hawking Help Desk and great service & ease in returning product through this site.
Summary: I recently purchased this at the beginning of October 2010. Attached to my FIOS M125 router as an extender it works great by extending the signal from corner room where the home office is across the house. It has a high pitched 6,000 dba sound so it should be mounted up high above ear level. I keep it on the second 200 MW setting and that is sufficient to cover a 2500 SF home. So, so far so good.
Summary: Have my wireless router in the bedroom and 3 laptops scattered throught the house. The Hawkins is installed between the router and the furthest laptop. I have seen a considerable signal improvement since my purchase last week. The only drawback to this item is the price....you can pick it up online at Walmart for $53.00.
Summary: Because I frequently listen to streaming audio, I carry my laptop all over the house. At the extreme end of the house, the signal used to drop out when just using my router alone. This pseudo-amplifier solved that problem.
Summary: I didn't think it was clear from reading theonline description, but I was looking for a booster for my existing wireless router. This product is actually something that hooks to your workstation to increase the receiver power of the workstation wireless card. This won't work well for a laptop unless it is stationary. Pretty much only for a desk PC.
