Summary: Set up was easy and it worked great for about two weeks. Then suddenly my devices lost all signal strength. The LEDs on the unit indicated it was receiving and/or transmitting, but no signal was being received. I verified that my router was set up with a static IP, as instructed by Hawking, but still no luck. I reset and the device and went through the set up procedures multiple times without success. I am returning this device and will try another brand.
Summary: Bought the HWREN-1 to replace a small repeater that we'd been using at our weekend cabin to share a neighbor's internet signal (source approx. 200 feet away). Set it up in a couple minutes - signal strength is now strong and we haven't lost our signal since (something that happened frequently with the old unit). FANTASTIC!
Summary: This range extender was simple to setup and performs well. Even better, when I had an unknown change to my wireless environment that took it offline, my call to tech support to get it fixed was handled immediately and well. I'd buy any Hawking product based on the excellent support alone.
Summary: I purchased the extender because I moved into a new two story house and was getting weak or no signal downstairs or in my yard. I am very knowledgable, building computers and setting up networks. It took two calls to Hawking to connect the router to my dlink. There tech support is out of India, the first guy was super nasty and I hung up on him.
Summary: I have had the device for 2 months and it has worked as advertised,great. It did take me 1.5 hours to set up, but that was my fault, since I was typing in an incorrect password from my router. Without screwing the password thing up, I estimate that set up would have taken me 15-20 mins. At least this allowed me to check out their customer service.
Summary: Took me 3 days with Netgear & 1 day with Hawking to get it to work. All I had to do was run the setup disk again for Netgear and then run the setup for Hawkings and everything functions beautifully! My dead spot is dead no more!
