Customer Reviews of Hawking HWUN4 Hi-Gain USB Wireless 300N Network Adapter
I got concerned about broadcasting my SSID from Verizon router, which is required for this crappy HP laptop I use or it constantly drops the wireless signal, so bought this USB nic card and booster in one, and never dropped signal. Software install went perfect and has worked without a glitch.
Rather than buy another router (expensive) or buy a repeater (not great for maintaining bandwidth), I bought this, hoping to grab enough of the signal coming over the brick wall that I would have fewer dropped connections. It seems to do the trick most of the time. It was a bit of a challenge figuring out how to configure my laptop with the software, but it has improved my connectivity quite a bit.
