QuickerTek launches Wireless-N nCard for older MacBooks

updated 11:20 pm EST, Mon February 1, 2010

New card has A, B, G, N capability

QuickerTek has launched a new wireless nCard for older MacBooks and Mac minis, extending Wi-Fi compatibility to include all four standards -- A, B, G, and N. The new card installs in the internal Airport card slot, with similar complexity to installing RAM chips. The components are claimed to offer higher signal sensitivity and transmission power for potentially faster speeds and a wider reception area. Reception can also be further improved with an optional external antenna.

The nCard is compatible with 2006 - 2009 Mac minis -- not G4 Minis, however -- and 2006 - 2009 MacBooks in white and black plastic. It also works in 2006 - 2008 MacBook Pros in both 15- and 17- inch models, excluding the unibody models. The new card is now shipping for $90.

    Wifi card in Macbook Core Duo is tricky

    Putting a Wifi card into an initial Core Duo Macbook is not as easy as swapping DIMMs. You actually have to pull a ton of screws and remove the case to get to the mini-PCI slot, while replacing memory IIRC is via pulling a bracket after removing the battery (same as accessing the SATA drive).

    I have a white Macbook which I've upgraded DIMMs, HDD and Wifi card, and the wifi card was the bitchiest one. Please do a bit of research before regurgitating vendor press releases.
