Hawking Range Extender
Hawking Technologies has begun shipping the HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender. The device takes the signal from any 802.11b/g/n access point or router and tr-transmits it at a higher rate, claimed to double the effective distance on a wireless network. Users can place the HWREN1 at the midpoint between the original access point and the area with poor connectivity. A setup wizard helps users configure the system by automatically detecting all nearby wireless networks.
The repeater retains transfer speeds up to 300Mbps and works with any brand or type of access point and the company's entire line of range extension products if the application requires even more distance. The HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender is available now with a suggested price of $100.
