New wireless transceiver for MacBooks

MacBook wireless extender

QuickerTek today introduced a new wireless transceiver for MacBook owners. The 27dBm Transceiver for MacBooks works with common 802.11b/g networking hardware including Apple's AirPort and AirPort Express Base Stations. Doubling the laptop's wireless range and speed, the new transceiver provides increased range as well as a stronger signal at greater distances. According to the developer, MacBooks can be used further away from network access points such as Base Stations, maintain high speed connections and connect to an increased number of available networks by delvering 500 miiliwatts of RF power -- ten times that found in the stock MacBook. The transceiver, which does not require any additional steps or drivers to alter normal wireless networking, clips onto the top of the MacBook case without velcro and "won't disturb the finish in any way." The MacBook transceiver attaches internally and a thin cable exits out of the case to the external antenna through the AirPort Express port on the MacBook. It is available now for $200 with a one-year warranty.
