Uni-Directional WIFI Range Extender

Uni-Directional WIFI Range Extender

Easily receive WIFI signals from far away using a standard USB WIFI adaptor and a bit of ingenuity. This Simple idea requires no modifications to a USB WIFI adaptor or your computer. A simple way to increase the signal strength and range of your WIFI. Plus it works with all USB WIFI adaptors.
Remove the Center Post (If your’s had one) and drill a 1/2″ hole as that is perfect size to fit the usb extention.

Insert the Female end of the USB extention (the part that doesnt connect to your computer) into the hole you just drilled. Then just apply the glue/epoxy and let it sit for 24 hours. This Creates a strong bond between the plastic and metal. I used some tape to help hold the connecter in place while the glue cured. Be sure to apply glue to both sides of the connecter. Once thats dry the next day, zip tie 2 of the metal “ears” so they wont fold in on themselves when you use it.

Just plug the USB WIFI adaptor into the socket on the dish and plug the other end into your computer. Enjoy boosted signal strength and improved distance. Fire up Netstumber or Kismet to really see the gain in power. This works even better than I thought it would. Be sure to leave your comments on how well it worked. Works great for war driving too.
