4 out of 5 eggsDon't use windows 8 driver

Pros: works after emailing manufacturer. This is an edit to posts before but use the Ralink driver in W8.1. Works now, thanks for the customer service, you can count on Hawking to pull through. Works as advertised with the correct driver.

Cons: Had to change driver from windows to Hawking

Other Thoughts: Do the following

Install the software (driver only). Then, go to network and sharing
center, click on change adapter settings. Right click on the Hawking
Adapter and go to properties.

Click on “Configure”, go to the driver tab. Click “Update Driver”
Click Browse my computer… and choose let me pick…

Choose the “Ralink” drivers (Ralink is the chipset). That will give you
back your 5GHz.

1 out of 5 eggsNo 5G on Windows 8.1

Pros: Works perfect on windows 7

Cons: No 5G on Windows 8.1. No driver for 8.1 from website either. 8.1 will not cooperate with W 7 driver no matter what you do.

Other Thoughts: After upgrading and RMA device, found out on my dual boot Windows 7 and 8.1, no go on W 8.1. Went to manufacture website for driver and windows 8 is grey out. If you are running 7, works great, forget it if you are on 8. 5G is not recognized no matter what you do.

4 out of 5 eggsUPDATE

Pros: RMA'ed the manufacture and was replaced no questions ask. All my products for this company have never failed. I received this almost dead on arrival. Manufacture replied to my one egg, made good on replacement.

Cons: New Egg could have done this but don't count on New Egg on this item, reason for 4 eggs not 5.

Other Thoughts: The range on this one is more than acceptable, it is as fast as your USB will allow. Overall I am happy with the exchange with the manufacture and praise all their efforts and equipment. I will buy from them again since they were concerned and I had such a speedy RMA.

1 out of 5 eggs5G disappeared

Pros: Worked for a few months, range on 5G marginal.

Cons: Huge compared to other 5G devices. 5G quite working after a few months, not worth shipping back, program buggy to say the least. Purchased router that performs over and beyond anything but this USB device simply quit on the 5G band. Guess I'm just out of luck.

Other Thoughts: Had good luck with manufacturers products but for some reason this didn't turn out. If you are not 5G, range is OK but I not sold on this.

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry for your experience. Sounds like you just had a defective unit. It is covered by a 1 year warranty and we could replace the unit. You can contact our customer service at rma @
