A typical wireless router's range begins to falter after 150 feet, dropping signals and limiting wireless connection. With a Wi-Fi booster like the Hawking HW2R1 Hi-Gain Wireless-N Dual Radio Smart Repeater that connection can be picked up and repeated over another 500 feet.
Three antennas on the top of the unit capture the wireless signal being broadcast from your router and then bounce that signal to the farthest corners of your home (and beyond). These three antennas can even be upgraded to receive a more distant signal and broadcast it even farther.
The Hawking HW2R1 is the only wireless repeater on the market with an antenna to harness the signal and two additional antennas to rebroadcast – most have two, one to capture and one to rebroadcast.
The Hi-Gain Wireless-N Dual Radio Smart Repeater is an advanced Wi-Fi connectivity solution that receives the signal of any 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi network and boosts the signal strength locally within your home or office.
The HW2R1 is the flagship product for Hawking's award-winning line of Hi-Gain Wi-Fi range extending products. Using two isolated Wi-Fi radios, the HW2R1 connects to your desired wireless Internet connection, such as a local Wi-Fi hot spot, neighborhood wireless network or office network and boosts the signal via a dedicated 300Mbps 802.11n Wi-Fi radio locally.
With 3 upgradable Hi-Gain 3dbi omni-directional antennas, the HW2R1 can be outfitted with Hawking Hi-Gain antennas to boost the connection range with outside wireless networks as well as locally within your home or office. The HW2R1 is ideal for Wi-Fi connections to marine docks, RV parks, adjacent offices and homes with Wi-Fi networks or any other source for wireless Internet connection. In addition, the HW2R1 provides security and functionality via a full featured firewall and router. The versatility of the Hi-Gain smart repeater makes it the perfect solution for any wireless application.
