DIY WiFi Antennas

WiFi antennas are omnis off the shelf. This means that all the power is distributed in a 360 degree pattern around the antenna. The easiest way to increase your range and direct the signal is to change the antenna into a directional. Popular Science shows you how with some cardboard, you can build some ugly, but useful antenna deflectors to increase your range and redirect the RF power to where you want it.
And if you’re not interested in creating ugly antenna deflectors, purchase some Flatennas from Tritium. Same thing as above, just a bit better looking.
