QuickerTek Inc. on Monday introduced two external antenna upgrades for Power Mac G5s. The company sells the G5 Antenna Cable Extender and the G5 Omni Antenna Kit.
The US$54.95 G5 Antenna Cable Extender uses the stock “T” antenna included with the Power Mac G5. The extender provides 36 inches of additional reach to provide better reception — QuickerTek claims it more than doubles the wireless range of Power Mac G5s.
The G5 Omni Antenna Kit includes both the extender and a 5dbi omnidirectional antenna. QuickerTek indicated that the omnidirectional kit can extend the range of the G5 up to 500 yards in open space. It costs $129.95.
Neither upgrade requires special drivers. They’re both available now from QuickerTek.
