I am using a BSNL Wi-Fi ADSL Modem and really enjoy wireless broadband on my laptop, android phone at my house. My only problem is that the bandwidth speed decreases as I move farther away from the modem, router.
So I was looking for a solution and came across this awesome homemade wi-fi range extender to improve wireless signal strength which can be easily made in a few minutes.
If you want to know how to login to your router to access the settings and setup page, see here.
Make Homemade Wi-Fi Range Extender for Your Broadband Modem, Router
1. Download the Windsurfer Ez-12 Parabolic Reflector Template : Click Here and print it.
2. Paste it on a piece of card, chart paper and then cover the back side with aluminium foil. Try to keep the foil as level smooth as possible. Use a glue stick instead of adhesive for best results.
3. Then, cut out the 2 pieces and make the slits as marked in the template. Then bend the circular piece lightly (foil inside) and insert the extended parts into the slits of the rectangular piece. (see below)
4. Finally insert your router’s wi-fi antenna through the 2 hole slits to finish the setup.
Now, point the parabolic reflector towards the part of the room you have the wireless device like your laptop, ipad etc.
Watch the video demonstration below to get a clear idea…
Thanks to this amazing setup, I now have full wireless signal strength in the nearby rooms in my house with the same speed as on my desktop. I highly recommend you try this setup to improve your wireless signal strength.
