17" MacBook Pro WiFi aid

QuickerTek has released a new wireless transceiver for Apple's 17-inch MacBook Pro, which it says doubles the WiFi performance and potential range of the laptop's integrated wireless connectivity. The new transceiver is fully compatible with all common 802.11b/g wireless networking hardware including Apple's AirPort Base Stations as well as those from other parties such as D-Link, Linksys, and Belkin. Featuring 500 milliwatts of RF power or about ten times more than a standard laptop, the new transceiver allows between 50 percent and 100 percent better performance--according to the company--as measured by range and signal strength. In addition, it supports the use of the MacBook Pro's internal antenna and Bluetooth. The new transceiver clips to the top of the the case without using velcro or any other substance that could damage the finish of the laptop. QuickerTek's transceiver for the 17-inch MacBook Pro is available now for $200 and comes with a one-year warranty.
