INTRODUCTION

Eliminate wireless dead spots for Long Range Applications and strengthen unstable connections for digital streaming!

Hi-Gain™ Wireless-300N Range Extender Pro repeats wireless signals from any access point or router with a 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n network. With a transmit power of up to 500mW and network speeds of up to 300mbps, the HWREN2 Pro, not only doubles your Wi-Fi network coverage, but its performance is three times stronger than any standard wireless repeater or extender on the market. It eliminates wireless deadspots and strengthens unstable connections for long range applications. With additional features like upgradable antennas, high power amplification, and hassle-free installation, the HWREN2 is an ideal solution to upgrade and improve your wireless experience.

Along with wireless connectivity, the HWREN2 has 5 wired 10/100Mbps Ethernet ports for connecting your computers that do not have wireless access. It also offers the latest wireless security features, ensuring that your files and network are safe from outside intruders. The external removable antennas allow quick and easy upgrades for more range demanding environments.


The HWREN2 Range Extender Pro combines a built-in Power Amplifier with removable external antennas to upgrade your overall wireless experience. The HWREN2 not only doubles the size of your Wi-Fi network, but also boosts performance up to three times stronger than the leading wireless repeaters/extenders on the market.

HOW THE HWREN2 WIRELESS NETWORK EXTENDER WORKS

A common problem with standard wireless routers is that the quality of most standard wireless networks diminishes significantly past a coverage radius of 200 feet. Anywhere outside the coverage zone will have slow and unstable connections, or even as major as no connection at all. The HWREN2 Pro is designed to pick up an existing wireless signal from an access point or router, then repeat it, doubling the existing wireless coverage. The Built-in Range Amplifier Technology boosts the power strength and filters out the unwanted Wi-Fi interference. As a result, it provides a stronger and more solid wireless connection to improve overall performance, such as improving the data transfer speed and reducing lag while streaming or downloading multimedia content (video, music, etc.).

SEAMLESS ROAMING FEATURE & THE HWREN2 WI-FI NETWORK



Place the HWREN2 within your existing network to expand the wireless coverage throughout your home and office. Eliminate slow network connections due to poor wireless coverage. Seamless roaming mirrors the existing network settings and allows your WiFi devices to connect and roam freely.


HASSLE-FREE INSTALLATION

The HWREN2 is quick and easy to install using a Wi-Fi enabled device (i.e. tablet, smartphone, Mac or Windows computer). Hassle-free means, there is no Ethernet cable or CD required for the installation. Simply power up the unit, use a Wi-Fi enabled device, and log into the set up page. This installation feature lets you configure and set up the HWREN2 within minutes.


PERFORMANCE CHART


The HWREN2 Range Extender Pro doubles the wireless coverage radius and delivers unsurpassable signals to your Wi-Fi enabled devices. As a result, the HWREN2 reduces wireless dead spots and brings high definition content to you at blazing fast speeds.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away from Hawking

Pros: I gave this product a 1 because it did connect when I had it well into the normal range of the source router and it paired and mimicked it and extended the range a little further beyond just like a referbished $50 Linksys RE-1000 did during my first attempt to solve the problem at hand… But I paid $89 for this Hawking product.

Cons: I would warn people to stay away from both this product and the company. I’ve been working with computers since 1981 and have “lived in the industry.” I benched this product when I got it and found it no better than a Linksys E-900 for signal reach or pull which makes no claim to being an extended product. I found the product to be worth nothing more than the cheaper competition and then was betrayed by their technical support that told me to keep it and try again with another set of antennas. (I originally paid $37 for what I thought was a set of their directional 12db gain antennas but it turned out to be just one for that price!). I trusted them and kept the product past the time I could exchange if for a full refund but had been told by one of their people that I could at least “exchange” the product for something I could use. There is even an “Exchange” on their RMA form but the RMA guys said that wasn’t for anything different… So what is the difference from their “replacement” option that is there… NOTHING. Details…. I pared it in close proximity to the source router as instructed and tested its function. According to my wireless meter this was at about -50 dB. With the pair of High Gain antennas it took me down to about-40 dB of loss (their menu is by percentage of signal) so I saw that I had that advantage from the better antenna set. When I took it to where I had to have the extender to serve its purpose, I metered the signal from the source router at -85 so I knew my net for the Hawking was about -75 dB. It wouldn’t even see the source router at this point let alone pass traffic. Well… is this too much for any router? No. My old XP HP laptop could connect from that spot to the source router and pass traffic and I could also communicate with the source router with an old Linksys Wireless G router using that same set of +9dB antennas. I simply asked them to exchange the $89 router for two of their $37 antennas so I could at least solve my problem and they refused.

Other Thoughts: There is no advantage to using their "super" products over Linksys stuff (even very old linksys stuff). They will play you on and then refuse to follow through on their commitments.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank You for your feedback. Unfortunately, we DO NOT have the exchange option. We stand by our policy and will offer "repair or replacement with the same or equivalent product". Our policy can be reviewed and downloaded from http://hawkingtech.com/RMA-Terms_Conditions.pdf
