Upgrade for older Macs touts 867Mbps maximum speed

BearExtender has extended its line of USB Wi-Fi devices by shipping an adapter that can add 802.11ac connectivity to older Mac desktops and notebooks with slower wireless network connections. Connecting over USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the BearExtender Turbo is said to be able to offer up to three times the speed of internal 802.11n AirPort cards.



Equipped with two upgradeable dual band antennas, covering 2.4GHz and 5GHz, it offers a maximum speed of 867Mbps, and is also backwards compatible with 802.11b, g, and n standards, allowing it to work with existing wireless network equipment. In terms of software, the company advises it is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard to OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

The BearExtender Turbo is available in the United States from today, priced at $80.
