Ease of Use

This definitely is much better than dealing with an internal LAN card. I was impressed with how simple it was to install and set up, it worked almost immediately! Have been referring these to my friends and family now -- great buy for a good price!

Great Product, With Decent Ease of Use

on 10/12/2006

I really like the USB wifi adapter. Its pretty easy to plug in and use, however, I think the only thing that I didnt like was the installation of the drivers. You can only install them by installing a proprietary program, which during installtion, can either be a replacement WiFi connection center for Windows, or allow you to use Windows built-in wifi connection center. Either way, you have to pick one of them to use, to be able to use it, and install the drivers that way. I do wish they would have either had the drivers directly available on the CD, without having to install the program, or at least have them available online, but they dont. Other than that, the adapter works great, and I even connected an external directional antenna to it, and it seems to work even better. GREAT buy for the money. Read More

A little disappointing...

by K-Ed on 3/10/2007

Bought this adapter because I liked the idea of being able to hook up an external antenna to it for improved reception. Thus was not the case with this one. Tried other USB receivers without the external hook-up and ended up returning them because of performance that was not up to my expectations. Granted I am receiving from building to building, but I'd expect better performance from something with an external antenna. This would be fine if the transx was in the same building, but there are equivalent USB adapters out there for less $$$ than this one. Hope this helps. Read More

The external dipole antenna can easily be removed and upgraded to a Hawking Hi-Gain Antenna for extended wireless range.

For piece-of-mind wireless security, the HWUG1 supports 64/128-bit WEP data encryption that protects your wireless network from eavesdropping. It also supports the WPA and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security standards that combines IEEE 802.1x and TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) technologies.
