You probably didn’t know that you can increase your Wi-Fi signal strength with a beer can. All you need is a beer can and these instructions.

It makes it so powerfull that you won't need the power cord.

This actually does work depending on the metal you use. The only problem is that it increases your signal strength in one direction, and decreases it in the other.

@NM, i see what you mean about the metal.
from WP:
Most metal beverage cans manufactured in the United States are made of aluminium, whereas in some parts of Europe and Asia approximately 55 percent are made of steel and 45 percent are aluminium alloy. Steel cans often have a top made of aluminium.

any idea which is best?

agree - aluminium

OK this would increase the strength on the receive side

would increase the "reflected" on the transmit side - poor strong signal

Just roll a piece of alminum foil into a 12" long tube and place it down over the antennae(s). Simple and it worked wonders on my wireless router.
