Dual-Radio Smart Repeater Features
The HOW2R1 Outdoor Smart Repeater is engineered with two dedicated Wi-Fi radios, one receiving and the other broadcasting. The receiving radio is accompanied by a power amplifier to boost its wireless strength and a 11dBi Directional antenna to increase its receiving sensitivity. This allows the HOW2R1 to pick up wireless signals from a further location. The rebroadcasting radio is connected to two 5dBi Omni-Directional antennas to extend the received signal throughout your local surroundings. In addition, the Smart Repeater Technology provides full featured firewall and router. This means you can share a wireless network without sharing the same security settings as the original one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat device

Pros: Great range, easy mounting, easy connection, GREAT weather resistance

Cons: None to date

Other Thoughts: Added this repeater to our Church network when members complained that they did not have internet access in some of our remote buildings. took about 35 minutes to install it, including running wires through the building wall. the POE is a great feature as I was able to install it over 100 ft from the power source.

Once mounted and powered (running the wires took most of the time), took about 30 seconds to configure with my phone and we were up and running. Covers our 4 acre property with a consistent 3 bars of wireless signal which is great since we do not have 4g coverage at our Church.

3 out of 5 eggsreview

Pros: Looks impressive, I have bought 3 for clients, the first one actually installed as per the instructions, the other 2 took at least an hour of resetting and programming

Cons: No where near a "quick setup", actually had to call tech support, they helped but. But my 3rd one is losing signal and is acting as an access point rather than a repeater.

Other Thoughts: Other poster is right it sucks that there are not very many products in this category to choose from, I am buying another one cause I cant find anything else.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It can be placed outside

Cons: Didn't deliver as I thought it would. I even called before purchasing. We have a metal building about 200 feet from our router where we are trying to get internet. Seeing how this repeater was advertised (on there website) at producing at 800 feet I thought it would easily produce in a building 200 feet away. It's production wasn't much better than the router by it's self.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry for your experience but it doesn't make since that your wireless signal was the same strength. The extender acts like a relay. You place it at a midpoint or close to where you are getting low signal. You log into our smart repeater, and choose your wireless network. After you enter your settings and save, it will then rebroadcast the signal out of the two attached antennas. One thing to note, there will now be a new wireless network for you to select so make sure you selected the new wireless network when testing signal strength.

1 out of 5 eggsPass on this nightmare...

Pros: Sets up easy if you have a good wireless technology background.

Cons: Loses connectivity to wireless gateway and must be "reset" at lease once a week or every other day.
Ranges are very poor.

Other Thoughts: I have gone thru 3 of these and spent over 4 hrs with tech support (tech support is knowledgeable at least). I kept trying to make it work because it was for a good customer. Some acknowledged problems are; locks out of configuration and needs to be un-plugged (no reset button) for 12 hrs to lose bad config. Loses connectivity and requires a unplug (albeit for 15 sec) to reacquire network. Either of these "known" problems make the product useless in my situation and it is a shame because it is exactly what I need and don't have an alternate product.
