QuickerTek's Connect

QuickerTek today announced MacBook Connect, its wireless booster for MacBooks. The Connect product boosts the signal between the internal AirPort card and the AirPort and AirPort Extreme Base Station or other 802.11 wireless access point from vendors such as Belkin, dLink, Linksys and others. Nearly doubling the wireless range of the MacBook, Connect is a 200 milliwatt repeater that delivers nearly four times the RF power of the internal MacBook wireless networking. Powered by a USB connection or AC adapter, the device can be attached to the MacBook case or kept on the desktop. MacBook Connect also features a powerful 2dBi external antenna and also accepts a variety of external antennas through the included antenna connector. The company also noted that the Connect generates four to five times more RF output and has a more sensitive receiver than the AirPort Express. Connect works with any version of Mac OS X and only requires a browser for setup; it is available now for $200 and backed by a 1-yr warranty.
