MacWireless antennas

MacWireless.com announced the release of a new antenna line, for Apple AirPort base stations, PowerMacs, iMacs, PowerBooks, and iBooks. The whip antenna ($50) is designed to help a laptop or desktop computer reach a far away access point, and can help to overcome obstacles such as the metal frame on Titanium and Aluminum PowerBooks. MacWireless whip antennas also work on an iBook with an AirPort or AirPort Extreme Card. The new MacWireless omni-directional antennas ($20-50) feature a waterproof exterior, making them useful for boats and RVs, and the antennas can be used with an AirPort base station and Power over Ethernet to create a solution for schools, homes, and offices. A MacWireless booster yields signals up to fifteen times more powerful than an AirPort card or base station. Featured in the lineup is a new ceiling antenna, which enables a wireless base station to broadcast downward through multiple floors, useful for cafes, study rooms, and multi-level office buildings. In addition to offering full support for Apple AirPort products, the new MacWireless antennas can also be used with most other wireless base stations and cards.
