Drop connections

Jim /., Newegg
16 December 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Bought 2, they would drop connections and when you try to reconnect it would just keep asking for the password. Had to reboot AP to get it to connect again. If it started out badly, there was no reason to think it would end good. Just returned them to save myself some aggravation.

Not as impressed as other reviewers...

Dylan, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: There aren't a lot of wireless bridges on the market. I had tried a DLink DAP1522 and it basically didn't work at all (see my review). This Hawking model had better reviews, so I tried it. Ultimately, it did work, but there are some problems you should be aware of.

Works great but couldn't configure wirelessly

Greg, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this device to work as a bridge to existing cable modem router. It can be configured as a bridge or access point. Out of the box was unable to connect using wifi. I finally plugged an ethernet cable into it and connected it to a PC. Setup was a breeze at that point.

First Bad Hawking Product Purchased

John S., Newegg
17 May 2013
  • Summary: I have used Hawking products for years which is why I chose this one instead of one of the more popular WAP's. First time I've been burned by Hawking products. I paid shipping to receive a faulty product and now I get to pay shipping to send a faulty product back.
  • Pros: Price, ease of use, simplicity
  • Cons: Bad out of the box, kept dropping the wireless connections of all devices connected to it every one to two minutes. Bought this to replace a faulty Engenius EAP300 and now I have two faulty WAP's. The search for a reliable WAP continues. Is there such a thing?
