Does NOT work with the UNIBODY MacBook Pro. 2011 or otherwise.

Upgrade Your Last Generation MacBook Air or Pro to the Fastest Wi-Fi Standard Available, 802.11ac

The new wireless standard is here for all Macs - 802.11ac. If you have an older MacBook Pro 15" Retina or MacBook Air 13", the built in AirPort card is only able to use the 802.11n wireless standard which is approximately half the speed of 802.11ac.

This specification has expected multi-station WLAN throughput of at least 1 gigabit per second and a single link throughput of at least 500 megabits per second (500 Mbit/s).

Enter the qCard 2 and 3

Utilizing the same chipset and drivers as the new MacBook Air/Pro model, this new PCIe card can be used to upgrade PCIe Mac models to the newly announced Wi-Fi standard of 802.11ac! Some installation is required. These cards are compatible with OS 10.8.4 or greater.

So what does this mean?

It means that you can get double the speed you're getting now with 802.11n WiFi network. 802.11ac uses the 5gHz spectrum, and the 2.4 gHz standard that's used with the 802.11n WiFi.

How does it work?

All you have to do is take the old AirPort card out and put the new one in. As long as you have an OS of 10.8.4 or greater, your PCIe Mac will recognize it instantly, giving you access to 802.11ac speeds at any compatible wireless access point.

If you are somewhere that does not have a wireless access point in the AC spectrum, don't worry. The QCard is fully backwards compatible, allowing you to connect to any wireless network.

There are two versions of the Qcard: a two port for the MacBook Air and the three port for the MacBook Pro.

V1- 2 Port Size: 39.9 mm x 18.07 mm
V2 - 3 Port Size: 46 mm x 18.5 mm

The QCard2 has been confirmed to work in the 15" MacBook Pro Retina and the 13" MacBook Air 13" with PCIe bus.
