great product and it works 10/20/2012
This review is from: HAWKING HSB2 Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster
i have verizon fios internet, with actiontec router,
with 3 laptops, 2 desktops, 4 ps3, 1 xbox, and 6 cell phones all on wireless. i was in need for a better signal,
signal would jump from 30-70% on the router.
i decided to buy this as of the reviews on new egg,
and magically i was getting signal range from 70-90%.
i have to access the router and scan through the channels and finally found channel 8 to be the best channel. i have notice the higher the channel the better the signal gets but also with interferance of other rf signals. router is place in the attic of a 2 floor home, so far so good. my laptop from 1st foor gets 1.5mb of download speed from bitorrent, it was a big wow for me as of able to get for what you pay for montly for the internet. i recommend this to anyone who experienced week signal off the verizon router
with this booster alone you need to access your router and scan through the signal to get the best of it.
the lower the channel the less signal it produced, at least this is what i am seing on my ps3 and laptop,
channel 10-11 would give me a range from 85-100% signal from the attic to first floor but with alot of inteferance, channel 1-6 was 30-65% very unstable,
then channel 7,8,9 i get a good stable signal of 70-90%
