QuickerTek AE adapter
today announced an adapter that allows third -arty wireless products to work with and at the Apple Airport Extreme rates. This adapter allows all third party wireless vendors to work with Airport Extreme Base Stations, enabling the Airport Extreme Base Station to recognize previously incompatible non-Apple external antennas; the adaptors are available in two connectors, SMA and MCX, for $50 each. QuickerTek also posted a "do-it-yourself 'tune-up'" designed to improve the antenna performance of Dr. Bott's ExtendAIR Omni Antenna for the Apple Extreme Base Station.
