As you may know, we carry a number of wireless (WiFi) USB adapters for Apple Macintosh computers. These devices have been compatible with Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4, and now we are excited that they are all Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) compatible thanks to new driver releases. We decided to promote this by doing a brief write-up below about each adapter and also linking to the new Leopard-compatible drivers for each one. If you buy one of these after the date of this post, it will ship with Leopard drivers. If you already own one of these devices and you have upgraded your operating system to Leopard, you can download the Leopard drivers for each device right here in this post.
The first adapter we want to mention is our RokAir wireless USB adapter. This is a really cool adapter because it has a built-in heat sink and also 100mw of output power (that's more than 3x the popular Orinoco series of wireless adapters!). This is a great adapter for in-home use and is very portable in case you go on the road a lot. You can download Leopard drivers for it here.
The second adapter we want to mention is our Apple Mac Wardriving kit, now nicknamed the RokOn (as in "rock on", just in case you missed it). The RokOn is the next step up from the RokAir because it features an external SMA antenna connector. This is great for folks with longer range wireless needs. It allows you to upgrade the antenna to whatever strength you require. It also includes two high gain external antennas so you can get a very good range right out of the box. You can download the Leopard drivers for the RokOn here.
The third adapter we want to mention is the RokIt (as in "rock it", or "rocket", take your pick). The RokIt has a slightly lesser range than the RokAir, but weighs in at a slightly lesser price. The RokIt is also ultra-portable and is a nice basic wireless adapter. Leopard drivers for the RokIt can be downloaded here.
Keep in mind that all three of these offerings are also compatible with Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4 (Panther and Tiger), and they also work with Windows operating systems from Windows 98SE all the way up through Windows Vista, as well as Linux (kernel 2.6.6 and later).
