QuickerTek Corner Antennas
QuickerTek has announced has released new to improved wireless networking in Power Mac desktop computers. With 12dbi and 14dbi RF power, users can experience 3-5 times the wireless range over the standard (bundled) Power Mac desktop. "Users can simply plug the new Corner Antenna into the AirPort card or port and continue to use AirPort networks, just as before. No software, alterations or other technical changes are necessary to receive this impressive wireless boost. The 'corner' aspect of this product is the way in which it mounts to the wall - in the corner. A corner mount directs the wireless signal toward the AirPort Base Station or access point, providing the flexibility needed in some network layouts." The 12dbi model is $80, while the 14bi model is $100; they are available for both G4- and G5-based Power Macs.
