[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - November 20, 2007 - QuickerTek the undisputed leader in wireless Macintosh products has just pushed the technology envelope with the Dualy. Now any Mac with a USB port can take advantage of wireless networking, whether the Mac has an AirPort wireless network card or not. Dualy also seeks out more distant wireless signals and locks them in with two 500 milliwatt transceivers coursing wireless across two antennas.
Dualy is an excellent solution for users who often find themselves accessing networks at work, school, hotels, coffee shops and other environments where signal strength and speed vary and who want maximum wireless performance.
Two 500 milliwatt transceivers inside each Dualy seize wireless signals from access points manufactured by a wide variety of common wireless hardware vendors. Most Mac laptops offer from 25 - 30 milliwatts of RF power, so it's very easy to see how Dualy can easily best any wireless connection from a stock laptop. And the dual 3 dBi antennas (one for each transceiver) provide the speed necessary for 802.11n wireless that runs in the 2.4GHz range. Users may choose to upgrade these antennas for even greater distance and wireless speeds.
Dualy easily clips to the Mac laptop case and is powered from the USB port. It is also fully compatible with all Apple AirPort Base Stations. The Mac should run Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, including Leopard (10.5x). An Apple AirPort card is not required to gain this powerful wireless performance, which makes it perfect for those users who have always wanted wireless, but either did not get an AirPort card or want to upgrade to the fastest wireless possible.
