    what a joke ?

    classic trick, doesn't boost speed as such but because it improves signal it prevents as many packets of data being lost and hence creates a slight apparent speed improvement. this also works for reflecting wi-fi signals from a home wifi hub back into the house rather than out of the walls, in that second use it really does have a measurable effect.

    @incognito0288 it will boost your connection, so you can realy have a faster internet connection to your router... :P

    This may help boost a weak signal, thereby increasing a sub-optimal transfer rate into something acceptable.

    However, this does not double the speed of a dongle. If the dongle is rated 150Mb/s and is already operating at that speed or very close to it, boosting the signal would not take it above 150MB/s. It may actually reduce the transfer rate of a dongle that already receives a strong signal. Phase inversion and microreflections are likely to instigate a lot of error correction.

    Symantics.
