Has anyone tried the new Hawking Technologies wireless HSB1 Signal Booster?
It looks promising but would like to know before I buy.
Thanks

Trying to reach the second floor from the basement with a little stronger
signal.

It should help, but you may be able to do it for less money, with a
high-gain, directional antenna.

Something like this:

Of course you would point it up, and toward your client, in your situation.

Simple enough to try. It's not software, so you should be able to return
either, if it doesn't meet your needs.

I already have one, a Hawking 6dbi directional.

Have you considered a repeater such as the D-Link DWL-700AP ? I use one as
a repeater and it works fine or I believe the 900AP gives 11g

Tony I would do that but from what I understand it will not transmit at
108Mbps, the repeater will drop it down to 54Mbps. I do get 108 on all the
computers but the furthest one.

Hello Jim:

I finally got my hands on a HSB1 and was able
to compare it to the Renasis BA24j booster I
was using previously. Both work fine with a
D-Link DI-624 and a DWL-G650 in Static SuperG
(108 Mbps) mode.

During informal testing I conducted at about
50 meters (about 150 feet) indoors the HSB1
boosted the signal from the factory DI-624
antenna about 9 dB. At this distance the
signal rate increased from about 48 Mbps
(without the HSB1) to from 72 Mbps to
96 Mbps (with the HSB1).

NOTE: I would advise caution if you plan
to attach an antenna with more than about
6 dBi of gain to the HSB1 when it is set
to 500 mW mode. (The microwave radiation
levels can become significant if you use
a high-gain antenna with a booster like
this).

Rather than extend my Apple Airport Extreme Base Station's wireless
network with another Apple Airport Extreme or Express Station I elected
to buy the Hawking HSB2 Signal Booster instead. This may, in fact, not
be an FCC approved setup according to Hawking Tech Support.

My HSB2 is, in fact, an HSB1. It even is labeled as such. The model
number was changed to HSB2 I think because the "HSB2" is FCC approved
and compliant.

http://tinyurl.com/bk4xv

In order to connect the Hawking HSB2 Signal Booster to my Apple Airport
Extreme Base Station I bought the MCX to SMA Hawking Jumper Cable (with
Key) Model HACSA. Other jumper cables may not work if they lack the Key
part necessary to signal the Airport Extreme Base Station to enable and
see its external antenna jack.

http://tinyurl.com/9rp8t

Rather than use the antenna supplied with the Hawking HSB2 signal
booster I connected a Linksys Omnidirectional 7dbi High Gain Antenna
with SMA connector, Model HGA7S.

http://tinyurl.com/dcfqx

My wireless network's signal strength is improved. Interfernece is
decreased.

When set at 500mW the Airport Network activity can cause some
interference with our 2.4gHz telephone if I am close to the base
station trying to use the phone.

I want my network to be safe for our family and read the previous note
regarding "microwave radiation levels" when using this booster and a
high-gain antenna.

Can you provide any specifics and make any recommendations to me
regarding my set up?

Thanks.
