Wi-Fi USB transceiver claims 10x signal strength

QuickerTek has introduced its latest computer accessory, a USB transceiver designed for Macs. The device integrates a 1 Watt amplifier paired with a dipole antenna featuring 5dBi gain. Power is provided by a USB port, while the antenna connects to anything near the computer such as a notebook display. Users can also upgrade the detachable antenna later if needed.

The transceiver is claimed to increase signal strengths by a factor of ten, allowing users to establish connections with Wi-Fi equipment normally out of range when using just the computer's internal antenna. The device supports 802.11b and 8092.11g specifications, along with 64- and 128-bit WEP, WPA or WPA2 encryption.

The 1 Watt transceiver requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher and can be purchased directly from the company for $300.
