Re: These Ducks Quack !!!

No pictures yet, but I just made a couple of these for my 614+ using cardboard, tinfoil, and a glue gun. They aren't pretty and are only 12cm-side squares, but for no real cost and a small amount of time I'm sitting in a former dead zone posting this

OK, I took a couple of snaps. Not great quality, but you get the picture pun intended

I was going for small size because I'm already in trouble for putting the AP somewhere it doesn't belong

I'm sure the card-board and aluminum foil helps...

HEE HEE HEE just kidding

That is pretty sweet! I should try that. Does the signal send only in the direction of the reflectors now? or- does it still broadcast everywhich angle?

Looking at the pics on boomer's original link : »osiris.urbanna.net/antenna_desig···emplate/ using these should make the beam more directional. The canted one is pointing close to directly (by eyeball gauge)at the downstairs room I needed better coverage in. I haven't tried the only other room I really use the notebook in (upstairs bedroom) yet, but it's in the same general direction anyway so I think it will be OK.

Yeah Rygel, the lunchbox is one of the many Pooh items my wife has collected over the years. Makes her happy

When I told her how much money I saved by not having to buy commercial antennas, she figured she could live with them as long as they stay in that spare room!

If you put enough pooh stickers on your AP and reflectors it might become acceptable anywhere you want it
