How To: USB WiFi Signal ExtenderSeveral years ago, I reported on a USB wifi extender in parabolic form.Â Now, we’ve got a slimmed down version using an empty food can and your USB wifi dongle. It’s not the prettiest thing, but it works and will boost your signal strength enough to grab the channel from your neighbor who’s barely showing up in your wireless network.
Plus this hack gives you adjustable control both up and down, and left and right. The concept here is getting the can to increase your signal.Â In addition, mounting the can and USB wifi dongle to a portable camera stand.Â This will give you the stability you need to keep the signal strength strong while in use.Â It will also allow you to keep the position for use from day to day.
