Hawking

  • Summary: Marginally improves signal. Needs new driver that is online from board manufacturer (Google product for new driver)New software is much easier to use. Only use original cable that is supplied, any extensions degrade the signal enough so that there is no improvement. Would I buy again...

  • Summary: I tried this but you have to have a clear line of vision to a internet antenna. We did, but it was about 300' and I couldn't get a signal. I've tried to resell in on ebay but no luck.

HI-GAIN Indeed

  • Summary: I purchased the Hawkin HWDN1 over 4 years ago but never got the chance to review it. The reason for my purchase was because i lived with my brother at the time and i could not pick up a strong signal even though i was probably 150-200ft away from the router.

  • Summary: Finally managed to return it after multiple phone calls, never worked, the light that was supposed to turn green never did. The product was defective and with the technical support difficult to understand (India ?) I will not be getting an exchange but my money back.

  • Summary: Do not waste your money on this. This does not work at all. I have called support twice and got no help at all. Even though this says on the box that it extends the range up to 600%, my range was not extended at all and the support told me it is not to extend the range but is only a wireless adapter...

Did not install properly on my Mac or Windows 7

On The Road, Amazon
5 November 2010
  • Summary: I tried installing this on my Mac 10.4.11 and Windows 7 computers. The dish itself installed and detected networks, but I could not get my Mac to connect with those signals. Hawking customer support was NO help. I had similar issues with my Windows 7 computer.
