    Software is included on the CD. No CD drive? Download here.
     

    Connecting to 802.11ac networks

    For maximum connection speeds, BearExtender Turbo must be used with an 802.11ac router and a USB 3.0 port.
     
    It is backward compatible with 802.11b/g/n standards. Internet download and streaming speeds will be limited by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) plan and service tier.
     
    For example, if your 802.11n Mac already gets the full speed provided by your ISP, BearExtender cannot increase the speed of your ISP.
     
    We recommend the 2013 AirPort Extreme or the 2013 Time Capsule, both which are 802.11ac capable.
     
    BearExtender Turbo is compatible with any 802.11ac router or network and will also connect to all Wi-Fi networks including 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n.
     

    BearExtender Turbo connects to your Mac using a high speed USB 3.0 interface. Also works with Macs that have USB 2.0 port.


    How it Works

     

    BearExtender Turbo contains a High Speed 802.11ac chip.

    Combined with twin dual band antennas and USB 3.0 SuperSpeed connectivity, BearExtender Turbo can deliver speeds up to 867 Mbps.

    The included driver for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard through the newest OS X 10.9 Mavericks allows you to scan and connect to networks.

     

     


    Performance and Benchmarks


    Product benchmarks are often performed under unrealistic conditions like testing two feet from a router with no obstructions.

    A real world test of BearExtender Turbo was conducted through multiple doors and walls at a distance of 75 feet between the test computer and base station.


    Using AJA System Test on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, a 2GB file was transferred between a Mid-2012 802.11n MacBook Air and a 2013 Apple Time Capsule at a rate of 10.66 Megabytes per second (MB/s not megabits). The same test with BearExtender Turbo connected to the MacBook Air’s USB 3.0 port had a rate of 23.84 MB/s, more than twice the Macbook Air’s internal Wi-Fi card.

    This real world test also included the overhead from transferring a file using the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP). Real world tests help reflect actual 802.11ac performance instead of theoretical maximum rates.

    For maximum connection speeds, BearExtender Turbo must be used with an 802.11ac router and a USB 3.0 port. It is backward compatible with 802.11b/g/n standards. Internet download and streaming speeds will be limited by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) plan and service tier. For example, if your 802.11n Mac already gets the full speed provided by your ISP, BearExtender cannot increase the speed of your ISP

     


    No Internal AirPort card required 

     

    Because BearExtender Turbo contains both transmitters and receivers, an internal AirPort card is not required.

    This makes BearExtender Turbo a great way to upgrade an older Mac to the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard even if the Mac's internal AirPort card is damaged or missing.

    BearExtender uses an industry standard RP-SMA antenna port allowing you the flexibility to upgrade to a larger antenna in the future, making it the ideal Mac Wi-Fi upgrade for travelers, students, road warriors and more!
     
    BearExtender Turbo connects using USB 3.0 SuperSpeed. It is also compatible with USB 2.0.
     
     
    Included 2 feet USB cable plugs into any USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port. BearExtender Turbo is not compatible with USB 1.0 or USB 1.1.
