Boost Your WiFi Signal Using Only a Beer Can

AmyVernon (1832298) writes | more than 2 years ago


AmyVernon (1832298) writes "This hack is supposed to boost signal strength by at least 2 to 4 bars.
What you need: scissors, a utility knife, some adhesive putty and an empty beer can. The brand doesn't matter for the router, but I suppose it would be cooler looking if it were Asahi or Stella Artois than if it were Budweiser."

I need this while riding the cal train. AT&T can really need a boost in wifi on their 3G . Their network sucks
