This concept is very effective when I first encountered this article it kinda seemed like it could be total BS!! But it absolutely works!!!! There is one thing I think he forgot to mention and that is this works best with the old school mini dishes that are perfectly round not the new HD models that are oval shaped. I also took this concept a step further instead of using a usb net adapter I used a wireless range extender and mounted it to the collector. By doing so you create a wireless AP that you can connect multiple devices to simultaneously. But in order to do this you have to manually configure the range extender since I'm assuming you will not have direct access to the intended network which requires a little bit of know how but nothing too technical. You will need the SSID, subnet mask, gateway, and the channel. After that it is just a matter of taking the time to fine tune your alignment for the best transfer rate. if you have knowledge of the exact placement of the router you intend to bridge that will allow you to get about 90% of your potential signal.
