    Misleading

    The headline and summary is misleading. it makes it sound as if the product that connects to the base station increases the bluetooth range... when in actuality it extends the 802.11 b/g range.

    They offer a seperate device for bluetooth... but you wouldn't know that clearly by reading the summary.

    "Misleading"

    "New AirPort Extreme, G5 Bluetooth antennas
    QuickerTek is now shipping its "Plug N Play" external antenna that works with Apple's Airport Extreme Base Stations, which it says increases line-of-sight signal distance to an average of 600 yards. It is shipping now for $90 and includes a 5Dbi Omni directional antenna along with the necessary cabling, bracket and installation instructions (as well as CD for measuring your wireless system performance). QuickerTek also announced its G5 Bluetooth Extension cable, which allows G5 owners to improve Bluetooth range. The $55 BT Cable Extender extender is available immediately.

    Re-read that one sparky... the summmary speaks for itself practically.

    Gee - Five.

    yuck

    This antennae looks like s*** in black! Do they even realize the base station is white in color? I wrote the company and asked about a white one. h*** with looks like this I could go to Radio Shack and grab a similar antennae and shove it in the airport.
