Step 1: Gather Required Materials
- Template Parabolic Reflector Template
Step 2: Assemble Your Wi-Fi Extender
Print out the template on a sheet of regular paper. You can actually scale the image to a larger sizewhile maintaining the relative dimensionsfor a stronger focus. First, cut out the template pieces, then use a glue stick to affix foil to the front of each piece. Use a knife to make cuts on the indicated slits and bend the reflector to fit the six tabs into the respective holes.
Step 3: Attach Onto the Router
Slide the booster over the existing antenna of your router and point it in the desired direction.
