4 out of 5 eggs Working fine 01/25/2011

This review is from: HAWKING HA12W 2.4GHz Hi-Gain 12dBi Directional Window Antenna

Pros:

Antenna works fine beaming my home wifi to my neighbor 200' across the street. White cable at 4' is just the right length to reach my Buffalo dd-wrt enabled router. My iPhone and Tivo devices connect easily with this WAP even well off axis and up to 100' away! This device is most likely not as directional as the similarly priced Hawking corner reflector antenna.

Cons:

I question the use of the two relatively small clear suction cups for window mounting. Also, the long term durabiliry of their two plastic mounts/brackets. I've already broken one. However, it was easy reattaching the gimpy mount in a MUCH more secure fashion with a carefully chosen screw and washer.

Other Thoughts:

I've never tried anything but window mounting this device. I have taken a MUCH larger clear suction cup of 3" diameter and wired it through the HA12W's top mount bracket for cheap insurance. With THREE suction cups holding the device in the window, I now have confidence in it staying PUT long term!
