HWREN1: Double the Effective Distance of your Wireless 802.11b/g/n Network and Eliminate Wireless Dead Zones
IRVINE, CA – Hawking Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of innovative wired and wireless networking solutions for home, workgroup, and corporate users, announced today that it has begun shipping the Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender. The new, high performance Wireless-300N Range Extender expands Hawking’s award-winning line of Hi-Gain WiFi Range Extending products, which allow users to effectively increase the distance and performance of their wireless networks.
The HWREN1 works by taking the wireless signal from ANY wireless 802.11b/g/n access point or router and re-transmits it at a higher rate, effectively doubling the distance of a given wireless network. The Range Extender is placed midway between the original wireless access point and the area that is experiencing poor wireless coverage.
“Hawking has done extensive research and development to create a new ‘repeater’ that performs at 300Mbps and is compatible with all wireless access points regardless of the brand, chipset or network type. We have also gone to great lengths to make installation as simple as possible and improve upon our successful Hi-Gain Wireless-G Range Extender,” says Jason Owen, Chief Officer of Product Strategy.
The Hawking Wireless-300N Range Extender is compatible with Hawking’s entire line of Hi-Gain Wi-Fi Range Extending antennas and range boosters for further range extension.
Using the latest in 802.11n technology, the Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender can repeat wireless networks with speeds up to 300Mbps making the transfer of media intensive files quick and seamless.
The new setup wizard simplifies installation by locating all wireless networks within the vicinity of the Range Extender. The user then chooses their desired network and places the Range Extender between the wireless source and the wireless dead zone.
