Helping out a friend

  • Excerpt: My friend has always weak signal in her house, so this time I did something about it. It worked ok, I wonder if a more expensive one would have worked better.

User Review

an anonymous customer, Walmart
15 January 2014
  • Summary: The installation disk that comes with this is not compatible with windows 8. I had to call and customer service finally sent me an email with a link for updated software. I still could not get the link to work. I called customer service again and was urged to purchase a one time charge of 19.00 that would allow her to do this remotely. I said no and she finally walked me through the process which took about 30 seconds.

Typical Cisco

  • Summary: Tried to set up with Linksys E2500 router. Would not go. Had to call Cisco support. When they started me down the path of modifying my router settings, I said ''no''. Returned product and purchased Hawking unit. Smoothe set up and performs perfectly, as advertised.

Be prepared to work setting it up

J. Hargrove, Amazon
3 June 2012
  • Summary: Everything seemed to be going so well. I ran the setup program and initialized the device sitting right next to my computer. Then, I moved it to the location where I needed the extended range. Oops! Nothing worked! Even the WiFi link from my laptop quit working. I looked at the documentation on the CD and found out how to run the "advanced" setup using a wired connection to the device. Set up a static IP address. Rebooted the router. Success!
