Good egg...

NFine "NFine", Amazon

  • Summary: This unit is quite special. I am not sure what might be available at the time I am writing this review, some years after purchase, but at the time there was nothing like it to be had from any other manufacturer of consumer-grade networking equipment.

Worked like magic!

  • Summary: I purchased this to use with our 2Wire 2701HG-B router. Our router is in the den on one side of the house, and we were not getting any signal on the other end of the house. I was able to set the repeater up within minutes, and it works great!

  • Summary: This product was easy to install and is working fine. Instead of 1- bar we now have 3 bars on our deck behind our home (which is why this product was purchased).

  • Summary: my computer (old windows xp) could not read the setup cd. i called the 24/7 service line, dreading a long wait without getting a resolution. much to my surprise my call was answered IMMEDIATELY and a very helpful technician walked through the manual setup. the whole process took perhaps 10 minutes.

Took less than 3 minutes to set up (call first for compatibility)!

  • Summary: I initially bought another Hawking extender (HWREN1) -- that's a different review -- but after speaking to a second tech, she informs me that my 2701HG-B 2Wire gateway was not compatible with the HWREN1. She, however, recommended the HW2R1, which is TWICE the cost.

Works great!

  • Summary: I read many reviews on the HWREg1 before I made my purchase. Set-up was very easy and it took my wireless signal from fair to excellent.

  • Summary: After the truly dreadful set up attempt experience with a Hawking extender I was a bit reluctant to try another but the Hawking tech support and AT&T tech support copnvinced me that the problem was that the first extender was not compatible with the new model 2700 HG 2Wire gateway.

20 August 2010
  • Summary: I was a little nervous about getting this set up. It was soooo easy. I'm getting all five strong bars in an area where I normally get one to two bars. I'm glad I read and followed a reviewer's suggestion to keep the extender next to the router instead of placing it midway between the router and...
