Introduction: Wi-Fi Signal Booster
For the first time since May or June 2016 using a soda can put the wireless router and it works.
But, it was a problem. A signal strength is poor (1 or 2 bar). I'm must to get a better signal from living room to a bedroom.
Eight months later, I've saw on YouTube video to improve a signal. Thanks to in this video in link below.
This is a second time to improve a signal
Now this instruction:
a pair of scissor
a knife (or Stanley knife to prevent injury)
a permanent marker
a piece of aluminium foil (to random adjustment)
three cans of soda (why "three"? Because I'll use this to get improving signal)
(Sorry I'm a certainly half-English 'cause I'm a Malay)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Make a Cantenna
First, make sure remove a soda can opener 'cause to more stable.
Second, trace with permanent marker and use a knife (or Stanley knife) to cut a half of base and a bottom (Tips: a top of can must cut 3/4 (or three quarters) to open a base)
Third, roll of a base upside down to widely a soda can.
Fourth, cut an aluminium foil for any length you want and cover with two soda can (Sorry this is an old aluminium was corrosion I'll don't have a new one. So, it will be OK). And the third one without using an aluminium.
Step 2: Step 2: Improvising a Signal Strength
Alright, now is time for testing, before that lets put a soda can
First, put a soda can without aluminium on Wi-Fi adapter with USB extender, place to coming a signal on your router.
Second, put a soda can with aluminium on wireless router. (Pro Tip: if router place a vertically use a glue tag to stick a soda can)
Now for the moment of truth (or should I've said "moment de vérité" in French)
a signal is "Very Good" or Excellent" and signal speed is high. Thanks to a soda can.
I'll hope you in this instructions. Let me know on comments (sort of) and thanks.
May the Soda Can been with you.
