Step by step guide on making a beer can booster
How does the beer can booster work?What you are making is a parabolic reflector, it is a way to extend the Wi-Fi signal. The curve of the can directs and concentrates the Wi-Fi signal. Aluminium is especially good at doing this.
It works well if you want to direct the signal in one particular direction but it might not work well if you want the Wi-Fi to be evenly distributed around your home. The great bit is that if it doesn't work as you want it, these boosters are easy to remove, and no money has been wasted. Most people who try this method can see an improvement to their Wi-Fi signal.
