Tonight, I made an antenna similar to this one out of paper plates and tin foil. It came out pretty close to that. Here's how to do it: http://www.freeantennas.com/projects/template2/index.html It was as easy as those arts-n-crafts (arts-n-crap) projects we used to do in grade school. Heck, I might even suggest it to my kid's teacher. "Ok Class! Let's impress your parents by making a 12dB WiFi booster antenna!"
