Can i make a wifi Extender antenna with a pie-tin?

Kind of like the ones in the image, The Wifi Receiver is one of those USB ones, That look like a USB thumb drive, I am used to those PCI card ones XD Would it work? And has anyone done it? Because, I have one lying around...And my wifi signal is by far too weak. Thanks

It should work. One of my highly-technical, HAM, electronics, adult friend just uses a metal container (cylindrical like a pack of biscuits) with his antenna inside, pointing at his router.

Probably. Try it. It would be better if they were tuned and bent to a specific curve to match the antenna. But those usb don't have very much antenna so most anything will help some.
