    i have a haxking HWBA54G ap that is on the fritz i cannot get to the web interface.
    i need to use the configuration program to reset it ( i think)

    i have already tried the reset button.
    the only light that is on is the power led.
    the configuration tool that ships with it does not work and never has.

    the one that i used to dl from the hawking site worked. but in case you havent already checked the www.hawkingtech.com site seems to be down

    did hawking relocate or did they just go bellyup overnight??? i really could use some help on this

    sorry about the fragged sentences I am kind of irritated.!

    jag i am pretty sure you own a hawking piece of equipment i can not find the number. if you can let me know what it is i would be very happy

    also if you can find anything out about this POS i would love it too.

    10 mins ago it worked perfect then i reset it to get dhcp and now it is ded

    only power light is on nothing else netstumbler doesnt pick it up and it comes up as a 10 meg connection when connected to my hub.

    well i used to have a hawking antennas or something way, way, way back
    but i was looking around and found this site with hawkings # 949.790.0810
    here is the site i got the # from: http://www.wirelessnetworkproducts.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=4

    well i looked around and google'ed for a while and looked @ some cached hawking web pages and could not find anything. sorry. it is funny that this company just vanished. i tried everything. for some reason my gut is telling me that hawking did not go bellyup.

    i tried to fond some hawking forums but they dont seem to exist either.

    i hear the WRT54G are getting pretty cheap these days :wink:

    i already have a WRT54G

    i wanted a bridge. with an booster. so i guess i will need rptnc - rpsma adapter now.
    and another wrt
    but im going to try to make hawking pay me for my stuff...
    since i havent even looked inside it and i didnt break it.
    for now the bridginh is done by a wusb54g so it dont really matter.
    except the pc is usb1.1 only and it is mad slow.

    I use Hawking stuff and love it. Never had a problem with it. Their web site is: http://www.hawkingtech.com/ The company appears to be up and running. Are you sure you typed the address right?

    glad to see that they didn't

    I've used Hawking stuff for almost as long as I've been using networks. I started off with a few of their NICs and modems, back in the mid-90's and found it to be great for the price.

    I never had the pleasure of calling their tech support, though, as I typically had 0 problems with their equipment, which included NICs, switches, and hubs. At the ISP where I worked, we constantly bought their equipment, which was primarily sold on an old auction site (which I can't remember the name of now.. but it wasn't eBay, I know that much). Always a great deal to get 10-15 of their NICs for less than a 3-5 pack of 3coms or Linksys adapters at the time.

    Anyways.. it appears that their site was down for some maintenance and a revamping (check out the news section), which would explain why you couldn't see them.
