These are just a couple of wifi antennas I cooked up real quick.

If you are interested in antennas, check this one out: http://www.instructables.com/id/Foil-based-fractal-antenna/

Step 1: Parts Needed

Usb wifi adapter.
Usb extension cable.
Plastic salad bow.
2 coat hangers
Large parabolic screen from children's toy.

Wire cutters


I was wondering if aluminum paint would work instead of the foil? <br><br>Thanks for the instructable.
if the paint contains actual aluminium in a considerable concentration, i cannot see why not.
Thank you for the comment. That would be a good question to ask the maker of the paint you expect to use. You could try it and if it does not work, you can still do the foil.
U should use better images...What if my wife need her salad ball? <br><br>Another instructable on the same issue...I prefer a metal parabolic dish but anyway....
You can get those bowls for a dollar. as for the images.
I have used a pie tin as a reflector, I mounted it 1/4 wavelength from the vertical antenna. (just mounted the receiver on the wall and put the tin over it.)
Thankyou for your comment. When I get a chance I probably will replace it.
