    The Hawking Technology HOW2R1 Wireless Repeater DOES NOT WORK in network bridging (repeater) mode. Their tech support refuses to answer questions regarding this problem. Do not purchase this device if you need a wireless repeater – it only works as a wireless access point and you will not be able to access other devices on your LAN.

    I bought two, neither worked. One came with firmware version 1.11 the other with 1.16. Went to upload latest version of 1.16 on the one that had 1.11 but it was not posted at their web site. Tech said they would be updating their wed site within ten days and I could get it then. Both units will not work without DHCP being turned on. Both units will not forward base routers DHCP IP adresses to clients.
