Hawking Technologies Unveils First Wireless-G USB Adapter Designed for Mac Users with Removable Antenna for Significant Range Extension
Hawking Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of wired/wireless networking and home automation solutions for small office/home office (SOHO) and small-to-medium business (SMB) users, announced the release of its HWUG1A Wireless-G USB Adapter for Mac Users today. The HWUG1A is the first such adapter designed for Apple Mac users with a removable antenna. The included external antenna can easily be removed and upgraded to a Hawking Hi-Gain antenna for a significant improvement in wireless range.
“The problem with wireless networks these days isn’t the speed, but the distance. If your wireless adapter does not have the wireless strength to go the distance, your network speed won’t make any difference. You’ll either end up with a weak signal or get dropped from your network entirely, and that results in slow file transfers and a lack of mobility. Like its sister product, the HWUG1 for PC users, the HWUG1A provides Mac users with the extended wireless range they need. The removable antenna gives Mac users the ability to customize their wireless networks for their specific applications. Most importantly, the HWUG1A can solve most WiFi trouble spot scenarios by allowing users to choose from our full suite of Hi-Gain WiFi Range Extending solutions. And the best part: installing the HWUG1A is easy — just pop in the CD to install the software, plug in the adapter, and you’re connected,” said Amy Tang, Marketing Manager at Hawking Technologies.
The HWUG1A connects to any Mac desktop or notebook computer using a USB 2.0 connection and features an antenna that easily unscrews from the adapter. Hawking offers a wide range of both Hi-Gain indoor and outdoor antennas that are compatible with the HWUG1A and can boost the user’s wireless connection distance up to 600%.
The HWUG1A also supports wireless Turbo Mode for connection speeds of up to 108Mbps when connected to a Hawking Technologies Wireless-108G MIMO Router. Advanced security features and support for WPA2 and WPA ensure that all data is encrypted and secure.
The HWUG1A offers the following key features:
- Wireless networking compatibility with any Mac OS X 10.3-10.4 (Intel or Power PC) system.
- External antenna allows for significantly improved wireless range and performance.
- Installs in seconds with intuitive, easy-to-follow Setup Wizard.
- Supports WPA2, WPA, and WEP wireless security.
- Plug-and-Play compatibility with all Hawking Hi-Gain WiFi Range Extending Antennas.
- Supports Turbo Mode for wireless data speeds of up to 108Mbps.
