In this instructable i'll show you how to build a very easy wireless antenna for practically no money. I made it by recycling some stuff that we were otherwise just throw away. So it's kind of green too! =)
The idea is to catch the wifi waves that pass near your laptop without reaching it, and make them bounce into your wireless antenna.
I use it standing behind my laptop when i'm.. reading my mail..
..to make it.. load faster..
It actually nearly doubled the signal strength i got from a certain access point.
It's really easy you'll see, so get into it right now!
Step 1: Gathering materials
What you're gonna need is:
-A big cardboard sheet
-some light pipe
-Some other cheaper adhesive tape
-a wood bit
-some (pretty soft) metal parts you can cut and bend
-tools: screwdriver, saw
