Increasing Connectivity from the Wireless Source

Long Range Wi-Fi Solutions with an Access Point Add-On / Router Upgrade
Bring your indoor wireless outside with the addition of a Hawking Outdoor Wireless-1750AC Managed Access Point Pro (HOW17ACM) or a Hi-Gain™ Outdoor Dual Band Wireless-N AP/ Bridge (HOD45B). You can also upgrade your existing indoor Router with a Hi-Gain Outdoor Antenna.*

 

* Your wireless device must have at least one removable antenna and the antenna connector (N-Type or SMA). Most Hawking 2.4GHz wireless devices already come with removable antennas for quick and easy range upgrade. For other wireless brands, please check to see if it has at least one removable antenna. Other type of connectors are available through Hawking Directly or Third Party.

Note: The HOW17ACM is PoE enabled and is required so the HPOE2 Gigabit Power Over Ethernet Injector Kit is the perfect addition to this product.

  Point-to-Multiple Point Wi-Fi Applications
 

Long Range Point-to-Multiple Points Wi-Fi solution
Take your Outdoor Network to the next level with our Long Range Point-to-Point solutions. On the distribution side, add a High Power Outdoor Wi-Fi Directional Access Point or increase your router strength with a Hi-Gain Outdoor Antenna. On the receiving side, connect all your devices wirelessly to the Hi-Gain Outdoor Smart Repeater (HOW2R1).

Extend the Wi-Fi Coverage for Multiple Locations

Long Range Point-to-Multipoint Wi-Fi Solution
For the most expansive network requirements, Hawking recommends using multiple HOW17ACM Hawking Outdoor Wireless-1750AC Managed Access Point Pros or HOD45B Hi-Gain Outdoor Dual Band Wireless-N Access Point / Bridge devices. Since the HOW17ACM and HOD45B are equipped with multiple modes, one of them being "Wireless Distributing System (WDS), you will also be able to use up to four devices together to provide Wi-Fi for a large area. Mount each device outside with the included mounting hardware to guarantee "line of sight" connections and avoid obstacles like other buildings and vegetation. This means you have the flexibility to mount the devices discreetly so your guests experience will not be affected.

Note: The HOW17ACM is PoE enabled and is required so the HPOE2 Gigabit Power Over Ethernet Injector Kit is the perfect addition to this product.

  Increasing Connectivity on a Boat / Dock

Wi-Fi Access for a Single Laptop / Desktop
Some existing USB adapters have removable antennas to provide the flexibility to customize your antenna strength. The Hawking HAWNU1 Hi-Gain USB Network Adapter has the flexibility to remove the attached antenna and upgrade it to a more powerful one. In the example below, we have added a Hi-Gain Outdoor antenna to the HAWNU1 to increase the receiving power of the USB adapter.

 

In the example above, we have combined the Hawking HAO9SIP Hi-Gain Outdoor Wi-Fi 9dBi Omni-Directional Antenna with the existing HAWNU1. This will maximize your network connection range and deliver a strong and solid wireless signal at extended distances. The HAO9SSIP antenna kit also includes mounting hardware (wall and pole) so you can place the antenna in the appropriate location.

 

Note: For an Omni-Directional Antenna, higher gain (dBi) antennas can reach further but have a limited vertical coverage and thus will not be beneficial for in-close setups.  All Hawking Antennas are compatible with the HAWNU1.  For Outdoor antennas, an Outdoor Cable, sold separately, is required.

  Setup a Wi-Fi Network from a House to a Boat

Wi-Fi Access for Multiple Devices
The HW2R1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Smart Repeater is a wireless "smart repeater"", that pulls in signal from a distant wireless source and creates a private network for all your devices in your boat and nearby. The HW2R1 is compatible with any wireless device such as smartphones, tablets and laptops and can support up to 254 wireless devices. Combine this with an outdoor antenna and outdoor cable such as the HAO9SIP Hi-Gain™ Outdoor Wi-Fi 9dBi Omni-Directional Antenna and outdoor antenna cable for maximum range and flexibility. Use the HAO9SIP's super powered 9dBi antenna to pull in signal, no matter how far the source, and the HW2R1's smart repeater technology to distribute the signal throughout your boat's surroundings. Protect yourself with the built-in router features to configure firewalls and privacy settings.
