QuickerTek improves PB wireless signal

updated 08:25 am EST, Mon March 6, 2006

PowerBook Connect

QuickerTek today announced The PowerBook Connect, which it says is the easiest way to get increased wireless performance without disassembling a PowerBook. The external device sets up simply using a web browser, enabling AirPort and AirPort Extreme-enabled PowerBooks and desktops with increased wireless range without opening up the computer or attaching to the internal AirPort cards. It requires power, but can connect to an USB port USB or use an AC adapter or an optional internal battery model. PowerBook Connect ampllifies the wireless signals going in and out of the computer, offering 200mW of power--more than six times the power of the PowerBook's 30mW in the PowerBook--and features a 2dBi antenna. QuickerTek says the device offers many other advantages over the AirPort Express, including a larger buffer for improved performance, better mobility with both USB- and battery-powered options, easy access to the RF port connector, and a more sensitive receiver than the AirPort Express. It is available for $200 or $230 (with battery).
