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.
Summary: Got this AP to replace a dying Linksys at my Church. Plugged it in, attached to it with my phone and had it up and running in 5 minutes. since we are in a rural area, we only need minimal security, so it wasn't necessary for me to dig too deep into the setup, but after reviewing, It has all of the...
Pros: Easy to set up with any mobile phone, took about 5 minutes to fully configure and put into use. Never requires a restart, it has been running for months with no issues.
Summary: I bought one of these units to extend the range of wireless coverage in my house, which is several floors from the location of the main router to my entertainment system, which has a wireless connection to the web to allow streaming from Netflix and You Tube - without it I found the signal was...
Summary: I have a large home and my daughter couldn't get good wireless reception on her computer at the other end of the house. I also wanted to establish service in my garage apartment which is separate from the house.
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.
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.
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?
