Premium Wireless Performance with Extended Wireless Coverage!

Hi-Gain™ Dual-Band Wireless-N Range Extender repeats wireless signals from any access point or router with 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz signal from an existing network. Compatible with 802.11a/ b/g/n networks, the HD45X is an ideal solution to upgrade and improve your wireless experience. It's an essential component to accommodate the growing demand for high-definition content. The HD45X doubles the size of your Wi-Fi network at up to 450Mbps, 3X faster than standard Wireless-N Range Extender in the Market.

Along with wireless connectivity, the 5 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports provide blazing fast connection for devices that do not have wireless access. The HD45X also offers the latest wireless security features, ensuring that your files and network are safe from outside intruders.


The 2.4GHz is the most commonly used wireless bandwidth. It also has a limited number of bandwidth for multiple activities, such as sending emails, video chatting, streaming movies, playing games, etc. Interference and major backlog to online activities are common in the 2.4GHz frequency since it is shared by different devices (i.e. laptops, tablets, smartphones, and even your microwave). The Dual-Band technology provides maximum flexibility for your Dual-Band compatible devices to connect to the popular 2.4GHz frequency and also off-load traffic to a faster less-crowded 5.0GHz frequency.


As you can see from the image above, interference with other 2.4GHz networks is inevitable, limiting your network speed and performance. With the availability of the 5.0GHz frequency, users can circumvent this interference and optimize their Wi-Fi connectivity.


A common problem with high performance wireless networks, is that quality diminishes at a higher throughput rate and the network becomes limited. The HD45X maintains that high performance by doubling your wireless coverage for your dual-band network. 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.).

In addition, Hawking Dual-Band Wireless-N Range Extender promotes data speeds of up to 300Mbps for the 2.4GHz frequency and 450Mbps for the 5.0GHz frequency. This means users can have more bandwidth and transfer more files in less time.


The HD45X combines Dual-Band technology with removable external antennas to upgrade your overall wireless experience.


The HD45X 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 HD45X within minutes.


Choose a Range Extender that fits your wireless network. The HD45X Dual-Band Wireless-N Range Extender is a great wireless solution for consumers looking to extend their wireless range with blazing fast speeds.

2 out of 5 eggsNope

Pros: Couldn't find any

Cons: Couldn't get it to work on the 5ghz band at all, it would find it and act like it was all set up but nothing. Got it to work on the 2.4ghz band and it worked for a few days and nothing.

Other Thoughts: For the price of these they should work with no doubt. I have a $19 TP Link repeater that works 100 times better than this thing. Im not the only one with this problem after doing a little research.

2 out of 5 eggsConnects ONLY to channel 36 (5GHz)

Pros: Good performance

Cons: Only connects to channel 36 on the 5GHz frequency. If you change the channel on your wireless router to anything other than channel 36, this extender will not see it. Tech support confirmed this.

Other Thoughts: If you are in the market for an extender, look somewhere else.

Manufacturer Response:

That is a very strange issue. We've tested here with the other 5GHz channels and have had no problem repeating the signal. Perhaps you are on an older firmware or you had a buggy unit but we have had no issues such as thiss. We recommend you update to the latest firmware version 1.30 if you experience something like this. I am not sure why you said techsupport confirmed this since it is not a known issue. Sorry for your experience but we will try to get to the bottom of this.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: none

Cons: Got this to try to upgrade my single band repeater (also a Hawking) However, as with every dual band bridge/ap/repeater I've tried this thing gets terrible signal strength. My Hawking HRWEN1 gets close to 90% signal strength, this gets about 30%.

Other Thoughts: Done with dual band! Apparently no one makes one that delivers any of the touted benefits. I will stick with my HWREN1, easy setup any works flawlessly. Did I mention it gets at least 2x the connection strength over ANY dual band repeater I've tried.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry for your experience. Did you contact our support about your issue? 30% seems to be very low and we have not seen such a low signal with other customers or even in our in house testing. Perhaps it was a configuration issue? We would be happy to troubleshoot your dual band issues. You may contact us at or call us at 1888-202-3344.
