Windsurfer Parabolic Dish

Little tip for increasing your wireless range

If like me your wifi signal is a little low round the house and you don't mind getting the glue out try making a Windsurfer Parabolic Dish as it can make the difference from having no signal to a good one

So if your from the blue peter generation and made the odd thing out of the junk under the sink it should only take 15 mins or so to knock one up which you then place on the antenna of your router and your done

Video from DL.TV of Patrick Norton and Robert Heron putting one together and testing

Got to ask whats blue peter and what metallic foil did you use on yours as it looks better than using kitchen foil

It's a UK TV show which has been on TV for years over here in the UK

The metallic foil i used i got from a art shop it's a bit thicker than foil so it covers better and is easier to use plus i printed pattern onto photo paper
