QuickerTek has announced a new WiFi Transceiver for MacBook Pros that extends supported range and performance on wireless networks.

The company promises wireless performance gains in the region of 50-100 per cent: this means users can access their network from up to twice as far away as before, or can exploit significantly faster data transfer rates on their existing network.

No drivers are required, but the solution needs to be fitted internally inside the MacBook Pro.

The 500milliwatt RF MacBook Pro Transceiver works with all common 802.11b/g networking hardware including AirPort and AirPort Express Base Stations. It's being sold for $200 in the US, but no UK price has been confirmed.
