Newer Tech launches Wireless b/g USB Stick

updated 03:50 pm EST, Thu December 11, 2008

802.11b/g USB stick ships

Newer Technology has launched its MAXPower 802.11g/b Wireless USB 2.0 Stick Adapter, enabling USB-based Macs to access 802.11g wireless networks, and is backward compatible with 802.11b. Designed with notebooks like the PowerBook G3 and G4 and iBook G3 in mind, the stick brings wireless abilities to older notebooks that often didn't ship with wireless capability included, or had the internal wireless cards fail. WEP, WPA and WPA2 security standards are supported, and transmissions cover a 50-100 ft range indoors, with a 300 ft limit outdoors.

The MAXPower Wireless Stick works with Mac OS X 10.3.9 and higher, and requires a USB port, preferring USB 2.0, but compatible at lesser speeds with USB 1.1. It costs $25 and is available via retail and online at Other World Computing.
