QuickterTek's new AppleTV Antenna Upgrade

AppleTV Antenna Upgrade

QuickerTek today announced a new wireless antenna booster for AppleTV. The company said that users can increase the range between AppleTV and wireless devices using the new AppleTV Antenna Upgrade. It uses tri-band external antenna technology that not only improves range and signal strength, but also cuts the wireless interference that plagues many AppleTV home users. QuickerTek's AppleTV Antenna Upgrade comes with a 3-foot cable that allows the external tri-band antenna to be placed up higher -- away from common wireless obstacles in the home or office (e.g. furniture, desks, etc.). The upgrade is completely compatible with 802.11/b/g/n WiFi equipment including Apple's AirPort, AirPort Extreme and the latest 802.11n version of AirPort Extreme. It is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor and is available now for $130.

    ginal?

    So you can position it up high, away from common "wireless ginal obstacles", huh?

    Ginal interference is the #1 cause of transmission problems with Wi-Fi.

    tri-band???

    As a term, the conventional use of the term "tri-band antenna" means an antenna capable of operation on 3 bands. Bands are frequency ranges. Only two are used that I know of so far: 2.4 GHz for b, g & n and 5GHz for a & n. We aren't due to have 3.7GHz open until early next year for 802.11y.

    I don't know whether to trust they are using the term correctly and are hinting at 3.7GHz support or if they are calling this tri for the 3 elements. I sure hope not the latter.
