Award Winning Wi-Fi Booster for Macs

Introducing BearExtender 1200, our 3rd generation award winning WiFi booster for Macs.
It has up to 70% more power than the original BearExtender.
BearExtender 1200 can pick up Wi-Fi signals up to 2-3 times the distance of built-in Apple AirPort cards.


What You Get

  • Up to five times the Wi-Fi range!
  • BearExtender 1200 features 1200 mW of power. That is 70% more than the original BearExtender Mac.
  • More reliable connections
  • Improved signal strength can prevent constant drop outs
  • See more Wi-Fi networks around you
  • Scan and connect to distant Wi-Fi networks.
  • With a 1200mW RF transmitter, BearExtender 1200 turns weak WiFi signals into strong ones, and picks up additional WiFi signals in many environments your Mac's built-in WiFi card cannot even see. 
  • BearExtender 1200 gives your Mac a strong WiFi connection in all parts of your home, office or hotel.
  • It is even perfect for use in airports, RV parks, and on boats. 

Featuring a glossy white finish, BearExtender 1200 is the successor to our widely popular 2009 BearExtender Mac model and 2012 BearExtender Mini models, both which received a 4-star rating from Macworld Magazine.


Scan software works with Mac OS Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion (10.5, 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8). BearExtender 1200 is not compatible with Mac OS 10.4 Tiger or earlier.

BearExtender 1200 works with both old and new Macs. This includes all PowerMac, iMac, iBook, MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Pro and Mac Mini running the following versions of Mac OS X:


  • Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
  • Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
  • Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
  • Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
  • Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

BearExtender connects to your Mac using a high speed USB 2.0 interface. Works with older Macs that have USB 1.1 as well.

How it Works

BearExtender achieves long range Wi-Fi performance through an external antenna, a high sensitivity receiver and a powerful 1200mW 802.11n standard Wi-Fi transmitter.

First, the upgradable external antenna design minimizes interference while increasing the antenna gain.

Next, BearExtender's award winning receiver is built using proprietary Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) for superior power amplification. This allows BearExtender to scan and boost faint incoming Wi-Fi signals.

Finally, BearExtender 1200 is built with a powerful integrated 1200mW amplifier, to communicate with a router, access point or base station at very long distances.


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 1200 features a mini USB port on the front that connects to the USB port on your Mac. A 2 ft USB cable is included.

No Internal AirPort Card Required
BearExtender 1200 contains both a transmitter and receiver, so no internal AirPort card is required. It is a perfect replacement for Macs with a broken internal card.
