QuickerTek has announced a new 5.5dBi antenna for the Apple 17″ MacBook Pro. This antenna more than doubles the wireless range and signal strength for US$100, notes the announcement. “With a 5.5dbi RF gain in signal strength, users can expect both a gain in the wireless range and in the signal-to-noise ratio — giving a stronger and faster wireless signal. The ‘boost’ means you can sit a lot further away from the wireless access point or Base Station when working wirelessly. The antenna design and attachment makes it easy to attach, use and remove for maximum portability.” Like most QuickerTek products, the 5.5dBi Antenna for the 17-inch MacBook Pro is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
