    Good Product / Features for the Price – Be Careful Setting up., July 13, 2011
    By 

    This review is from: Hawking Technology High-Gain Outdoor Wireless-300N Dual Radio Smart Repeater (HOW2R1) (Personal Computers)

    Like others the setup which seemed easy at first really turned out not to be. I suspect that many of the negative reviews are due to complexity issues vs true lemons.

    In short this is a good affordable (near industrial) solution, especially considering it is really a full featured router, with 2 High Gain Antennas, Outdoor Enclosure, Mounting Bracket and an included PoE Injector. You get a lot of bang for your $250. I will probably buy a few more for work. (This was for home use)

    WARNING – THERE IS NO RESET BUTTON.

    My Setup Problems, In case you can learn something from my mistakes.

    I followed the Quick Start (not the CD), found and connected to the router and walked through the set up. There is a vague warning that says if you set this up in bridge mode you might not be able to access setup again, but that you can hold reset for 10 seconds. Since bridge mode was what I wanted, I figured what the heck I can always hit reset if I get into trouble.

    WARNING – THERE IS NO RESET BUTTON.

    I was just playing with the device testing it with one of my home routers, then I was going to make my real production changes later.

    WARNING – THERE IS NO RESET BUTTON.

    I later decided that Bridge Mode was not meeting my needs. So I wanted to change the SSID and put the HOW2R back into AP mode. But I could not “speak” to the HOW2R. I did not know its IP address and since it was in Bridge Mode, I could not interact with it directly. After hours of looking for a reset switch, taking it apart, pulling off cables trying to reset it, I gave up and called Tech Support (India) Sunday Night. My support person had great English speaking and comprehension skills. What I had to do was to use the installation CD to “Find” the device via wireless and then learn its IP address. Then, in order to “talk” to the device (my idea) I had to manually change my IP address on my Laptop to be on the same subnet (198.162.5.220) and connect to it again with a physical Ethernet cable. Then I was able to “talk” to the device and change all the settings.

    With the Device sitting a few feet from my CiscoE2000 I had comparable signal strength out to about 100ft, but then the HOW2R kept going and going out to about 300ft+. In my final setup with the CiscoE2000 inside a sealed metal data cabinet inside a wood shed, and the HOW2R about 10 feet away on an outside wall, I was able to get close to 100% signal from the HOW2R at a distance of 250ft (as far as I needed to go).

    Like others have said, bring an expert if you don’t know what you are doing. While this is plug and play, by answering a simple question wrong it will kill your day. For those looking to see only a single SSID I did the following. I disabled SSID broadcast on my CiscoE2000 and used the HOW2R for broadcasting its own SSID.
    WARNING – THERE IS NO RESET BUTTON.

    I would probably buy a few more of these.

    By the way, all my testing was with wireless-n. Your mileage may vary.

    UPDATE: 4/17/2013

    Still going great after 2+ years, no problem whatsoever.

    One other tip comes to mind reading some of the negative reviews. Like with any Wireless Setup you need to pay careful attention to what channels you use and the devices around you are broadcasting on. Your main router should be on a different channel than the extenders. There are plenty of free “wifi” finder apps for your smartphone, you will be shocked how many conflicting signals there are. I can almost assure you that 90% of the reviews that said it does not go far enough or dropping signal are because of channel conflict. I ran a wifi finder in my office building, and instead of the 4 that were visible, I uncovered about 40 in the 2.4Ghz range. People there are only about 12 channels, and almost all them were grouped at the default #6. (Imagine 40 people trying to talk to you at the same time, it wont work) So I put my main router at #9, and my repeater at #3. Now I’ve started deploying 5GHz routers to get off of the crowded 2.4GHz range. I need to test and change channels about every 6 months to try to avoid getting stepped on by others as tenants come and go.

    As to the lack of a reset switch, that is not a negative (you don’t want one in a public area). I’m just stating that the documentation was incorrect, so be careful.

    I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and it works great. I am boosting a signal thats about 200 feet away and its great. I have tried several repeaters and have never been able to get them to connect from this distance.

    Powerful signal, but configuration difficult, December 5, 2010

    This review is from: Hawking Technology High-Gain Outdoor Wireless-300N Dual Radio Smart Repeater (HOW2R1) (Personal Computers)

    I bought this hoping to expand wireless coverage at my church. We currently have a single Netopia 3347 DSL modem that has okay range. I was looking for a product that would provide much more range and coverage and work with the existing setup.

    After opening the package and following the quick-start instructions, I was able to get the Hawking Smart Repeater to “see” the existing wifi connection. It was able to connect quite easily. This is where things got tricky … the Hawking Smart Repeater then proceeded to create its own separate wifi connection with a different SSID, a different encryption method, and a different subnet.

    The end result was that my laptop would see two different wifi SSID connections – the original connection to the Internet, and the repeated one. This configuration technically worked, but it wasn’t what I wanted. What I wanted was one seamless area of strong wifi coverage.

    So on the Hawking device, I tried changing the SSID and encryption of the repeated wireless connection to match the original connection. And that’s where things got really ugly. The Hawking Smart Repeater still tried to act as a DHCP host on its own subnet. I tried disabling the DHCP, activating bridge mode, and putting it on the same subnet. The Hawking Smart Repeater then failed to connect to the Internet. It could still see the original wifi network, but was unable to access the Internet. I tried making a few more changes, and all of them were unsuccessful. Most frustrating however, was that after activating bridge mode, it became nearly impossible to access the web configuration page. Nearly all attempts to access it via the repeater’s local ip address ended in errors, but it would sporadically let me see the page. This would get my hopes up that I could make changes, but when I clicked the ‘submit’ button, it would disappear again.
    Even worse, because it was built for the outdoors, there was NO Reset button. The instruction manual said a hard reset could be performed by holding the reset button down for 10 seconds, but doesn’t indicate where this button may be located. I think they used the same instruction manual from an indoor version of the smart repeater.
    Anyway, I gave up and decided to send it back to Amazon.

    Pros:
    -STRONG wireless antennae. While I had the internet connection working with two separate SSIDs, my laptop could see and communicate with the box from good distances and through walls.
    -Tough exterior box. It says it’s built for the Outdoors and it’s true. The housing seems to be pretty robust.

    Cons:
    -Creates a separate wifi network. Attempts to make one seamless network were unsuccessful.
    -Expensive.
    -NO RESET Button. VERY FRUSTRATING.

    I can see this device working well if two neighbors wanted to share one internet connection. One neighbor would host the internet connection, and the second one could use this device to pick up the signal and create his own separate network.
    The back of the box also showed other possible uses: sharing/rebroadcasting an internet connection at an RV park, and also for sharing/rebroadcasting internet for boats in a harbor.

    For those situations, this device would be great. If you’re trying to expand the coverage of your current network and have the same settings across, this is not the device to buy.
