Re: These Ducks Quack !!!



THAT WOULD BE A VERY BAD IDEA... VERY BAD.



Sheesh! Sorry, I was only trying to be funny! Guess I better not quit my day job, eh?



Oh, and you DID get the focal point wrong.



You're right, I did. I made these at 2 am when I found this thread. A few days later I actually printed out the template to scale and reshaped the middle part that the antenna plugs into.

Frankly I don't see an improvement in signal strength over the original ones I scratched out by hand. Then again, I'm only operating about 30 to 40 feet away from the Access Point. Perhaps if I was further away the difference would be measurable.

Regardless, I'm a happy camper. Anytime I can tinker and not blow myself up--much less get favorable results--I end up enjoying myself.

Again, thanks for the tips!

Thank you sir for replying... I get touchy sometimes. In this case I didn't see the joke but I do understand. I might have said the same thing were the shoe on the other foot. You see I made it available to the public against the advice of council. The initial concept was to have a postivie impact upon network security. I hadn't thought of actually selling the thing until it got to be quite popular (3500 downloads last month and 2500 in December).

I'm pleased that the design worked for you. Thirty to forty feet is pretty close to be able to notice much difference. I've got two units that are about that distance apart but there is a stone wall between them and all I do is go from an 84 percent signal to a 100 percent signal.

Try the same expirement at a mile and you'll notice the difference, in a big way.
