Default Extending Your Wifi!!

Dont know if this will help anybody, but I have had trouble picking up wifi in PP and my son in law told me to build this contraption which took me 10 mins.I am now sitting in my living room for the first time on line. I bought the kitchen utensil at the market for 10 euros and some epoxy glue. He gave me the other parts and I am amazed it works. I havn,t a clue how to forward you the website but if you google "uni directional wifi range extender" and click on indestuctables.com, the full instructions are there. They even show pictures of how to do it. Good luck. GPM

Hi all
Yep, this kind of thing has been around for a while, I think some chinese students came up with it, they used a type of mesh rice strainer which in theory bounces the waves even better, the trick is making sure your bluetooth adapter is palced at the converging "bounce" point of the radio waves. I know this post is about creating a booster, but, in fact some people have made them with massive woks and if they are live on high ground and have line of sight actually are able to piggy back unprotected wifis from up to 25 miles away, which by the way IS illegal.... apparently......
