External Whip Antenna Triples Wireless Range for MacBook

QuickerTek now offers a 5dbi whip antenna for the latest crop of Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops all models. This $49.95 antenna upgrade attaches to the internal Apple AirPort card through the ExpressCard slot or the security slot-depending on the MacBook/MacBook Pro. A detailed installation manual and all the tools required are included with the kit.

There are no additional software to use, so your MacBook/Pro works the same before and after the upgrade is installed. The upgrade moves the antenna up and out of the MacBook/Pro case which boosts the wireless range and speed with the powerful 5dbi antenna which has a removeable antenna clips to the screen of the computer.

The Whip Antenna for the MacBook/MacBook Pro upgrade is designed for the unibody MacBook/Pro 13 inch, 15 inch and 17 inch models including the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation laptops. It also works with all Apple AirPort Base Stations, all 802.11a/b/g/n wireless access points from Belkin, Cisco, DLink and most others as well. Compatibility includes wireless devices in the 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz ranges-which covers most any wireless network users are likely to encounter when going mobile. Like most QuickerTek products, the 5dbi Whip Antenna Upgrade is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
