DIY Wi-Fi Antenna Cheaply Extends Your Wireless Network

We’ve shared lots of ways to boost your home Wi-Fi. If you need something a bit more powerful, this DIY antenna can stretch your wireless network much further.

DIYer Danilo wanted to share his internet access across multiple apartments, and traditional methods just weren’t doing the trick. He wanted to try out a bigger antenna, but before buying one, cooked up a DIY option himself to see how well it worked. All it took was some copper wiring, some aluminium foil, and some Tupperware (to keep it protected from the elements, since it sat outside).

The result was so good that he didn’t even need to buy an antenna. You’ll need to be able to solder, but if that’s already a skill you have under your belt, this’ll probably be a quick and easy project. Hit the link to see more.
