QuickerTek wireless gear
The Kansas-based QuickerTek has released five new wireless adapters for Apple systems. First in the group are two USB dongles, the Nano ($50) and the nNano ($60). The former provides 802.11b/g, and is meant for PowerBooks, iMacs and iBooks. The nNano supplies 802.11n, and should work with any Mac desktop or laptop that has USB. The nQuicky PCI ($100) functions exclusively with PowerMacs, and adds 802.11b/g/n; G3, G4 and G5 systems are supported, though not G5s with DDR2 memory.
Finally, the nQuicky PCMCIA CardBus ($60) grafts 802.11b/g/n to PowerPC-based desktops running Mac OS X, and the b/g Quicky CardBus ($50) provides 802.11b/g for PowerBooks. All five adapters should be available now.
