Mac mini wireless 'combo' upgrade gets 802.11a

updated 08:35 am EDT, Mon September 10, 2007

Mac mini wireless upgrade

In addition to to its 802.11n upgrade announced earlier this year, QuickerTek has announced an advanced 802.11 wireless upgrade for Intel-based Mac minis, bringing support for 802.11a wireless (as well as the newer, faster 802.11n networking). The new upgrade, which can be installed by a user or by the company, provides 802.11 a/b/g/n compatibility for maximum network compatibility. It has an external antenna for 'a' wireless as well as three antennas for MIMO wireless, which the company said enables the Mac Mini to easily reach top wireless speeds not previously possible on accessible networks. The user-installed upgrade ($150) includes the high speed 802.11 upgrade card, external antennas, cabling, tools and illustrated installation manual - everything needed to install the Mac Mini upgrade. The installation service ($200) is available as well (and requires additional charges depending on the shipping option the customer chooses); the 802.11a/b/g/n wireless upgrade is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

    ...what?

    What does this add that the Mini doesn't already have apart from an ugly external antenna?

    Re: what?

    Well, if MacNN didn't delete my post, you'd know it adds 802.11n wireless connectivity.

    might be useful for car

    For about the sampe price, somone can get Airport Extreme Base Station which has wireless-N, without voiding the warranty.

    But I do see some people might find this useful, especially those people who installed Mac Mini in the car. It'll be highly useful if the antennas are high-gain (but no power rating listed). War driving anybody?
