HWABN1: Hi-Gain™ Wireless-300N Access Point/Bridge

The HWABN1 puts multiple solutions into one compact unit, saving you time and money.  It converts wired networks into wireless-N networks, and performs at up to 300mbps for fast and efficient data and media transfers.  The included Software Setup Wizard lets you change the function of your HWABN1 whenever you wish to adapt to your specific application and changing network environment.

 
 
 
HOW IT WORKS

The HWABN1 is a 2.4GHz wireless 802.11b/g/n compatible solution that allows you to repeat signal from any wireless access point or wireless router. This product is designed with multiple operating modes: Access Point, Bridge, Point-to-Point, Point-to-Multiple Point, and WDS Bridge.

 

In Access Point Mode, the HWABN1 converts a wired network to a wireless network.

 
In Bridge Mode, the HWABN1 consolidates all your wired devices and connects them to your wireless network.
 
In Point-to-Point Mode, use two HWABN1devices to beam signal from one device to another (use with wired devices).
 
In Point-to-Multiple Point Mode, use multiple HWABN1 devices to wirelessly network all your wired devices.
 
In WDS Bridge Mode, multiple HWABN1 devices share the same SSID to create a wireless mega network.
 

FEATURES

  • Dual Function: Access Point and Workgroup Bridge
  • Converts wired networks into wireless-N networks
  • Complies with 2.4GHz Wireless 802.11b/g/n network standards
  • Increases your overall wireless performance by up to 200% in optimal wireless conditions
  • Performs at up to 300Mbps for fast and efficient data and media transfers.

Description 2
  If the HWABN1 is configured as Bridge Client, can I use Hi gain Antennas to receive signals from a long distance?
Yes, Hi gain antennas can be used along with HWABN1 but if the HWABN1 is configured in Ethernet Bridge Client mode both the antennas should be replaced with identical Hi gain antennas
  What is an access point?
Access Point mode is used to convert a wired network to a wireless network. In simple words, if you have a Router which doesn't have the wireless capability, Access Point can be connected to it using an Ethernet cable and broadcast the wireless signal.
You can also use an access point to connect to your wired network to create more wireless nodes.
  What is a wireless bridge?
Bridge Client Mode is used to convert a wireless network to a wired network. In simple words, if you have wireless signal in your house, using the Bridge the wireless signals can be received and given to any device using Ethernet Cable.
Example: You can use the Bridge for you TV which doesn't accept wireless connection
  Can the HWABN1 work as a range extender?
The HWABN1 supports only WDS to extend a wireless network. It is always recommended to use identical devices when using WDS since this mode is dependent on the wireless chipset. WDS mode can support up to 4 different Access Points simultaneously, but it can support an almost infinite # if daisy chained ie. A talks to B, B talks to A and C, C talks to B and D, etc.
  I’ve lost the HWABN1 antenna, can I get a replacement?
Yes, go to our www.gohawking.com store for a replacement.
