Disappointing

Dion R., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: Bought it to replace previous Hawking which had performed well but stopped working. I have a Mac and the software_HW2R1.exe file from Hawking website is Windows only.
  • Pros: Easy Setup
  • Cons: Poor speed, poor range. Waste of money.

mbps eater

JS, Amazon
29 January 2015
  • Summary: I'm not sure if I had unrealistic expectations or what but this thing didn't only do nothing to extend the range in my home, it dropped my download speed from 53mbps to 1.3 mbps<<< not a typo. Once I plugged the repeater into my modem with the cord, it went up to 2mbps.

Really worth the cost, having such a strong wireless signal now.

Joel C. Walker "WhoDoctorK9", Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: Awesome Repeater, really strong signal and helped bring a better experience to my Netflix viewing. My television is in my livingroom and the modem/router is in a back room that was added to the house, very thick wall between the back room and the livingroom.

DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT ! - READ REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING , troublesome product, poor Hawking Tech Support

simon Josowitz, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: UPDATE 4 March 5,2014 : Amazon denied my request to return product to the reseller. So I'm stuck with a useless device. Buy only from Amazon directly. Look at product description carefully and never buy from a re seller. The A to Z guarantee is useless in this instance.

Doesn't Live Up To The Promise

johnw, Amazon
15 October 2013
  • Summary: I live on a sailboat in a marina. The WiFi Access Point is over 100 yards away through a forest of masts and big power boats. I need a high-power connection that I can share with various devices. The Hawking HW2R1 isn't it. I did not have any setup problems as reported by many others.

Hawking Technologies HW2R1

Douglas S., Newegg
13 October 2013
  • Summary: None
  • Pros: None - It does not work as advertised! Really Slow!
  • Cons: In sharp contrast to Hawking Technologies stated "Features" and "Claims" of technical superiority I found the HW2R1 to be severely lacking. Straight out of the box speed tests show a marked reduction in performance. The results of over 100 speed tests for multiple testing providers to diverse tes...

Excellent

Michael F., Newegg
1 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought this based on several reviews, totally satisfied with the performance. Place this in a cabinet with glass doors shut, 4 bars all over 2 story home. Added the DLink antenna for the RV, this router rocked 50 yards from access point at campsite. Can't go wrong if you don't need 5G.
  • Pros: easy setup, excellent coverage, nice interface, better than most and I can use it in the RV.
  • Cons: No 5G
