    WIFI little signal boost help

    Attachment 50449 If those whom would like to try this it could work for that low WIFI signal. I tried many different designs till I got some improvement on the WIFI 20dbm to be exact. I couldn't even go up to the second floor with out loosing connection. But now I can. Only been trying for 1 day if it stops I'll let you know, but it's better then nothing. All you need is copper tape or maybe aluminum might work too. I needed to move it around on the back till I got a good position for signal increase, and needed the back cover in place for what ever reason that seam to help. I did have it at 50% increase but couldn't believe it so I took it off and could not get it position that good again DUH! Should of left it alone eh hoser, according to Bob and Doug. Well this was on the droid incrediable with no wireless service on it just using Google voice for phone service, tinkering around. Pretty cool not needing service. All for fun though, hope this helps someone out.

    Yes it's copper foil tape, not pieced together. It's all one piece.

    Sorry took so long to respond, at work for past week.

    I had this lying around for years and did not realize how expensive it has gotten. Probably try the aluminum first, little cheaper.
    Or if you know someone that's a MRI engineer, they use this stuff for the faraday cage in MRI suites.

    You might try this from LOWES Reflectix 2" x 30' Reflective Foil Tape. Not sure if it will do the trick. But it's only 4$

    Amazon.com: DiMarzio Copper Shielding Tape 24""x3-1/2"": Musical Instruments

    Amazon.com: 3M Copper Foil Tape, 1194, EMI, 1" X 36 Yards, Acrylic: Home Improvement
