Summary: The Hawking Wireless Range Extender is a great product that WORKS! Finding and ordering the product was easy. Great recommendation. This product is inconspicuos even in plain sight. What more could you ask for? Thanks for the great product.
Summary: The one I got needed to update the firmware. After that it worked but not continuosly (dropped the connection every 3 hours or so). It's not compatible with some new PC and did not work with my wireless printer.
Summary: Although this worked as expected setting up a Secure Connection Required accessing the web interface which there was not alot of instructions on how to do this.. Also had to upgrade the firmware and the configuration software in order to do the initial setup on Windows 7.. All in all a good product was setup and working.
Summary: Have my wireless router in the bedroom and 3 laptops scattered through out the house. The Hawkins is installed between the router and the furthest laptop. I have seen a considerable signal improvement since my purchase last week. The only drawback to this item is the price....you can pick it up online at Walmart for $53.00.
Summary: This Range Extender does an excellent job for about $80 and is very easy to install. Out of the box and up and running in about 30 minutes. It has a lot of bells and whistles that are more than what is needed.
Summary: Could not get installed. First time I spent 45 minutes with Hawking support and they finally said, return for replacement. With second extender, I spent another 45 minutes with Hawking support. They said lights on device indicate working but I could not get internet service. I sent back for refund and I am llking for another extender.
Summary: Extended range to desired location to 54 Mbps initially, but dropped to 12 to 24 Mbps later. The slowdown could be the wireless router (for cable modem) it extends or the signal from the cellular provider. I will improve my rating if I discover it was the router or service provider. The documentation was not well written or as clear orspecific as it could be. I did get an e-mail reply to a request for support, and I appreciated that.
