Customer Reviews of Hawking HWABN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Access Point/Bridge
Great performance and value1/16/2010
I have my router in the basement of my 2-story 4000 sq ft home, and the coverage just wasn't that good in corners of the 2nd floor. This device definitely cured that problem! I placed it in a 2nd story story room, and the signal and performance is outstanding. I've had it a couple of months, and the only issue I had was getting it configured. It ships pre-configured with an IP address scheme different from my network. I know something about IP addresses and networks and was able to change the configuration on my own. I'm not sure that someone less technical could do this without a call to support, but to be really fair I don't remember if I used the installation software or not. Once that was resolved -- and it took all of about 5 minutes -- it has been flawless. Definitely recommend this device if you have dead spots!
