QuickerTek on Monday introduced a new 27dBm transceiver for 17-inch iMac G5 computers, enabling users to pick up wireless routers from up to a mile away.

The transceiver connects to the AirPort card inside the computer, with the antenna clipped to the case. Pricing is US$200. The transceiver is compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b routers and works with OS 9.x and Mac OS X v10.x.
