Horrible....just horrible

M. G. Forbes, Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: I have never had such a terrible experience with a network component. I bought two of these to use as a bridge to the neighbor's house, since I have plenty of spare bits to share and they're suffering with lousy DSL bandwidth. A couple of bridges, a couple of high gain antennas, we're golden. Right?

Product over-priced and under delivers

JDogg, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this unit for over a year now...and it's a piece of junk. Don't buy it! I'm a computer professional by trade, and have a lot of tech gadgets around my house and in my home lab. This is by far the worst piece of equipment I own.

Use the disk

Big E "Crazy IT Guy", Amazon
16 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought two of these to extend our network out to our shop. I also used some Hawking High Gain Antenna's to get the signal as far as i needed it to go. I read the other reviews and was unsure about how well these would work.

Hawking Wireless G AP/Bridge

T. Green, Amazon
10 June 2008
  • Summary: For advanced configuration use the web interface instead of the installation program. Once it is up and running it works great until the power goes out during a storm. After a power outage it may take a power cycle or two to get the network back online but it is rock solid with no problems any other...

Very Disappointed

Renae, Amazon
2 December 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this item with a 14dbi antenna and my Linksys wireless g network card has better rang. For some reason it is picky on which networks it likes. eventually it got hot some how and melted the casing. If you ask me this item should be under review by Hawking.

Buyer beware

Paulcsf, Amazon
25 October 2007
  • Summary: As most others have said, tech support sucks. I purchased the unit for bridge mode, and the firmware it came with bricks the unit when you switch it to bridge mode. Completely worthless. I had to send it back, which was an ordeal, and they charged me!

Vile customer "service"

Bruce L. Wailes, Amazon
12 January 2007
  • Summary: This company appears to be setting a new low in a field that has already sunk to a remarkable low ebb. Attempting to get customer service from these people is about as productive as trying to get a drink out of a Vogon.

8 July 2006
  • Summary: I have tried repeatedly to contact cust support since their cd software was written impproperly and cannot even be read on a screen--- Without the software you cannot setup this unit for proper operation and their tech support is absolutely clueless and tells you to go to cust support who then tells...

Awful Tech Support

Hawking-less, Amazon
3 May 2006
  • Summary: When this thing works, it's fine. But if anything goes wrong, you're SOL. I had to reset my router, which means it defaults to an unencrypted state. To re-set encryption, you have to go to a web address. The site no longer exists -- or at least it's been down for the past few days.
