QuickerTek Upgrades Apple AirPort Base Stations Produces Five Times More
WICHITA, Kan. –05/30/06– Apple AirPort Base Station users can now get
five times the wireless performance. QuickerTek announces an upgrade to
Apple AirPort Base Stations that will provide up to five times the wireless
range at full signal strength than the stock Base Station. There are two
options: either send your Base Station to QuickerTek for the upgrade ($200
USD), or buy one already upgraded from QuickerTek ($350 USD).
This new Base Station upgrade offers 500 miiliwatts (27dBm) of RF
(wireless) power. Compared to less than 50 milliwatts of RF power found in
most Base Stations, this upgrade makes a huge difference in not only your
ability to sit further away from the Base Station, but also in retaining a
strong and full-speed signal. No changes in setup or working with the
upgraded Base Station are necessary. You simply turn on the power and
instantly you can distance your computer from the Base Station.
The upgrade is available for all Apple AirPort Base Stations (except the
graphite model) and includes AirPort Extreme.
The upgrade option for your Base Station is shipped back to you the same
day it is received. You decide what shipping options you need. Customers
pay for shipping into QuickerTek and QuickerTek pays return ground shipping
to the customer.
Customers who do not own a Base Station may choose to simply purchase an
already-upgraded Base Station from QuickerTek. The cost is $350 plus
Rick Estes, QuickerTek president said, “The Base Station upgrade is so
simple to buy and use that most Mac users will find it is by far the
easiest way to instantly gain huge wireless performance. Now you can move
way down the hallway or even sit outdoors and still use your land line
broadband internet connection over wireless – and at full speed. Our
initial feedback has been that some customers do not want to add antennas
or use other installed products to get better wireless, and this Base
Station upgrade removes all of the nerdy setup and installation worries.
‘Fast and easy’ is what these customers have told us they want and we’ve
delivered,” Estes stated.
Like most QuickerTek products, the upgrade is backed with a one-year
warranty on parts and labor. The warranty on Base Stations sold already
upgraded is 90 days. Additional product information is found at
