Kool Tools: Base Station Extreme/Time Capsule antenna upgrades


QuickerTek lets you upgrade your 802.11 ac Apple Airport Base Station Extreme by adding six high gain external antennas to the unit. This antenna upgrade provides dual-band 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz WiFi and also triples the WiFi strength of any version of the new Apple ac Base Station Extreme and/or Time Capsule.

The improvement in wireless power is accomplished by optimizing antenna location. QuickerTek can either supply a new Apple unit, or the customer may send in their own Apple unit.

With the addition of six high gain dual-band 5dBi antennas, users can position the upright and articulated antennas to work best for their specific work area. Placing wireless equipment for optimum performance becomes much less troublesome. This upgrade also boosts AppleTV and any other wireless networking task. Users can also experience the improved wireless for their broadband WiFi connections to DVD players for streaming media such as Netflix and Hulu.

The standard Apple Extreme Base Station doesn't have a built-in port to connect these antennas. QuickerTek has engineered a means of attaching them to a customer-supplied Base Station. Alternatively, QuickerTek can supply a Base Station that has already been modified with the antenna connections. Buffering is eliminated and multi-user WiFi connections are smooth and fast.

The stock Airport Extreme Base Station AC or Time Capsule don't support external antennas. To add the antenna adaptor cable ports, these units are machined for connection to the internal wireless board. The QuickerTek adaptor cables that connect to the custom CNC-machined antenna mounting base either fit on the top of the Base Station or Time Capsule or can be remotely placed using extension cables. These antenna extension cables provide yet another means of optimizing the placement of wireless gear for maximum WiFi throughput and performance.

This Base Station Extreme AC Antenna Upgrade works with all Mac OSX operating systems from 10.7 and later — as does the Airport Extreme. The antennas can be mounted to all three versions of the Airport Extreme as well as the 2TB and 3TB Time Capsule versions.

Three different upgrades are available: Airport Base Station Extreme AC, 2TB Time Capsule and the 3TB Time Capsule. Prices range from US$398 to $598. Customers can also send in their own unit to be modified at a price of $199. Go to http://ww.quickertek.com .
