Ease of Use

I purchased this device almost a year ago and have swapped it out with several others like it. This device make absolutely NO difference what-so-ever in your signal strength and does nothing to boost the signal in your office or home. Hawking does make some good devices, but this is NOT one of them. Don't waste your money. Look at their website for the professional wireless solutions if you feel you need a product like this.

Bought this product about six months ago for almost $40 bucks at CompUSA. Install it onto to my router and i have no problem getting signal from one end of my house to another.

Waste of time/money

by Treefrog on 7/31/2007

Made no improvement to my wireless signal. Tried it in 2 different locations and two different WAP. Not even the slightest improvement in signal strength. Can't imagine what the quality checks are for this device...

Seems Worthless

by DougL on 8/1/2007

I just connected this to my TRENDnet TEW-432BRP Wireless Router and a few quick checks indicate that the signal strength is barely equal to the original 2dBi antenna that I replaced. I should have checked the similarly negative reviews at Amazon. The antenna moves up and down on its base so it can sit on a desk or be mounted on a wall. All the picures show it angled back slightly, but the instructions don't mention if there is an optimal angle. It is supposed to be omni-directional so I shouldn't have to point it in any particular direction.
