PCI-based 802.11n adapter
QuickerTek has introduced an new 802.11n wireless adapter for desktop Macs: the nQuickly, is designed for PCI-based Power Macs and is priced at $150; it delivers up to 300 Mbps of theoretical throughput across the 2.4GHz frequency while retaining IEEE 802.11 b/g compatibility. The PCI card is compatible with any Power Mac with a free PCI slot, including the Power Mac G3, Power Mac G4 and Power Mac G5. It requires Mac OS X version 10.4 or higher. The nQuicky PCI is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor. QuickerTek previously introduced an 802.11n CardBus upgrade for Apple's PowerBooks going back to the "Pismo" models.
