Time Capsule Wi-Fi booster
QuickerTek has announced that it is shipping new versions of its Dualy Extreme Wi-Fi extender, this time designed around Apple's Time Capsule backup/NAS drives. The standard option consists of two 500mW transceivers (1W combined) connected to two antennas, which can increase the range of a Time Capsule up to five times; alternately, this may help power past nearby obstacles, such as signal interference or intervening walls and floors.
If the 500mW version is insufficient, QuickerTek is also producing an upgrade with 1W transceivers, for 2W of total power. Upgrading a Time Capsule requires some disassembly; self-install kits cost $350 and $495, but QuickerTek will install the upgrades itself at costs of $400 and $550.
