USB Dualy adds 802.11n

QuickerTek on Tuesday introduced the Dualy, a new USB device that brings hi-speed networking -- including 802.11b/n/g -- to any Mac. The Dualy seeks out more distant wireless signals using two transceivers coursing wireless across two antennas for maximum signal strength and speed. The company says that the two 500 milliwatt transceivers inside each Dualy offering more than 15 times the standard 25 - 30 milliwatts of RF power in standard Mac laptops. In addition, the dual-3dBi antennas (one for each transceiver) provide the speed necessary for 802.11n wireless that runs in the 2.4GHz range. Users can also choose to upgrade the antennas for even greater distance and wireless speeds. Quikertek's Dualy easily clips to the Mac laptop case and is powered from the USB port. It is also fully compatible with all Apple AirPort Base Stations and runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, including Leopard (10.5x). It is available for $326.
