Works great but ...

Summary: I gave this item four stars because it works but setup was a bit problematic. We have two Toshiba laptops. One took about an hour before it finally connected. The other we had to keep trying over a number of days.
Summary: This product gives you a decent performance. It is relatively easy to set up following the provided instructions and CD. I have only tried it as a repeater and works OK. Range is not awesome but decent enough given the price.
Still working great after almost a year (after replacing the defective first one)

Summary: I've been using this repeater for about a year now. The first one I received was definitely defective-- it just wouldn't keep a steady signal; it kept dropping in and out of being connected to the main network. Hawking customer service was great and they replaced it right away.
Summary: My purpose for buying this range extender was to allow connection to home network from outside of the home. It works well and allows use of handheld, netbook and laptop computers from distances of 50 to 75 feet outside of the home.
Summary: This worked exactly as expected with one exception--range. I moved my main router to the basement to get better reception for my XBox and Wii. This left the upstairs fine for laptops, but with no connectivity for iPhones. I initially configured the repeater downstairs and it worked fine.
Summary: I recently purchased this extender from Amazon to replace a Linksys WRE54G extender that had simply stopped working (the second one to fail, I've had reliability issues with Linksys). After reading the set up woes some have experienced, I was expecting a challenge.
Summary: I had problems getting a good signal in my living room from my office so I bought this extender. It works great and the installation was surprisingly easy and quick , basically plug in , follow instructions and plug out.
Summary: Once I finally had it up and running it worked fine. Installation is pretty straightforward however there are a couple of details that aren't completely accurate in the set-up instructions. When it says to place the extender half-way between your router and the problem area, not always true.
Summary: The Hawking HWREG1 did exactly what I expected a range extender to do. I used the setup CD and everything worked without any issues. In less than 30 minutes from opening the box I had the extender configured and operating.
Summary: The product is fine, it's very easy to install and set it up, but somehow the range coverage isn't as good as claimed. I'm just 5 meters away from it, with a wall in between, but I only get 2 bars of windows vista's signal.
