Are you looking for a cheap way to boost your wifi signal or help find more wireless access points with your pc? A simple way to boost your wireless signal is by mounting a wireless adapter to the focal point of a satellite dish. The best way to the find the focal point is by putting the wireless adapter on the dish and moving it around slowing, until you find the highest signal focused onto a single wireless access point.

Another great way to boost your wifi signal is by putting your wireless adapter into a soup can. This type of rigged contraption will transform your wireless adapter into a great directional wireless adapter. I was able to more than double the amount wifi networks that I discovered around my apartment.

    I’m building one right now, you will get a major gain if you put the adapter at the end of the pole where the LNB used to be.

    got bt broadband , have no phone line in my house ,(a granny annex on my parents house) have a hub in their house and work my wireless lap top from there signal , it is very up and down always losing connection,is there anyway of boosting the signal?

  • Abbey Spencer says:

    I have bought a router and it connects to the central modem so that all the house gets wireless internet. However, my CPU only gets a fair and poor signal. Other computers and laptop with wireless system next to my desktop get higher strengths but my desktop doesn’t.

    I bought a router with 1 antenna so that it can boost the signal overall. The signal strength has changed to the other computers except my desktop. Would I need to disable the wireless in my desktop and purchase a router so that I can get a better signal.

    The above router signals are weak at the rear of the house. Is there any way to boost the signals or can you suggest a stronger router?
