MacBook Pro Users Up To Double Wireless Performance
with new Transceiver from QuickerTek
WICHITA, Kan. –05/01/06– MacBook Pro users can now get up to a 100%
improvement in wireless performance using the new MacBook Pro Transceiver
from QuickerTek, Inc. This new Transceiver works with all of the common
802.11b/g networking hardware including Apple AirPort and AirPort Express
Base Stations. The MacBook Pro Transceiver is available from QuickerTek
dealers for a suggested retail price of $200 USD.
Who needs betwen 50% and 100% better wireless performance? Those people who
want to use their MacBook Pro up to twice as far away from the AirPort Base
Station or access point. Sit in the back yard, use your MacBook across the
street at a neighbor’s house, sit at the far end of office from the Base
Station or even someone who doesn’t necessarily need more range, but would
thoroughly enjoy faster transfer rates from their wireless network.
This new Transceiver offers 500 miiliwatts of RF power. Compared to less
than 50 milliwatts of RF power found in most laptops, this Transceiver
makes a huge difference in not only your ability to sit further away from
the Base Station or access point, but also in retaining a strong and
The MacBook Pro is still very easy to use when equipped with a Transceiver.
There are no drivers or other changes to the normal wireless routine. The
internal antenna and Bluetooth still work – in other words you’re not
required to disconnect anything to get the dramatically better wireless.
The antenna end of the Transceiver easily clips onto the top of the case
without velcro and won’t mar the finish or alter the case in any way.
You also can use any popular wireless networking hardware including access
points from LinkSys, Belkin, dLink and of course, Apple AirPort and AirPort
Extreme Base Stations. That means just about any 802.11b or 802.11g
networks are within your power to use.
The MacBook Pro Transceiver attaches internally and a fine cable extends
out of the case to the external antenna. This cable exits through the
AirPort Express port on the MacBook Pro.
Like most QuickerTek products, it’s backed with a one-year warranty on
parts and labor. Additional product information is found at
