The Hawking HWRN1A Wireless Router arrived well-packaged in a large cardboard box. The front of the package displayed a nice picture of the router, and the rear of the package provided a list of features and a couple of easy-to-read diagrams of network setups.
One thing that Hawking highlights with this router is the ability to expand or upgrade the antennas using their Hi-Gain series of antennas. This is great especially if you live in a multi-story house or use your network outdoors, as this can easily expand the range of your network.
