If your Mac laptop doesn't come with a built-in airport card, or if you want to add Wireless-N to your desktop, you now have more options.

Trendnet, maker of the cheap yet reliable Wireless-N access point, announced Thursday that it will implement Mac support for two of its Wireless-N USB adapters--the Trendnet TEW-624UB (version B1.1R) and the Trendnet TEW-644UB.

Mac support for these adapters comes in the form of a software utility and a driver that allow the devices to work with Mac OS X v10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard). Though the retail packages of these adapters will take a few months to include the software, you can download it now at Trendnet's Web site using the links above.

According to Trendnet's CEO and president, Pei Huang, the company will continue to expand its support for Mac OS in the future.
