Has anyone ever tried that? I looks like it might help.


It should help, not sure about broadcasting boost, it might help slightly with directional if your laptop was somewhere infront of that can, but to catch the client signal (laptop etc) there is now a 1000% bigger area for the signal to reach and bounce to the antenna

I've seen people create directional client cantennas that can pick up wifi signals from a lot further away than the antenna on its own can reach ( USB wifi dongle & pringles can)

Wrap it around the router ? The antenna must be inside the router unless they have gotten lost ?

Wouldn't that REALLY hurt if you brushed past it? :s



Yeah, I think it is sharp enough to give you a cut.
