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.

    nQuickly 802.11n

    As usual, Mac peripherals are priced significantly higher than their PC counterparts.

    5GHz?

    IIRC 802.11n (at least Apple's) works best in the relatively-uncrowded 5GHz band, and if this adapter don't do it, then it's worthless :/

    Cheaper to buy an AP and use it as an ethernet port bridge, if only the Airport Extreme had gigabit ports :/
