Improve Wireless Networking on the cheap
I was talking with Phish today and he was asking about wireless networking. I am doing it with a neighbor and he was wondering about increasing the distance and the equipment:
I ran upon the following page which outlines how to get this done and do it on the cheap, for those with limited finances.
THis is a perfect solution for two neighbors who are wanting to setup a wireless network and live relatively close to one another.
Enter the homebrew cantenna.. hehehe
Read through that article thoroughly. He gives a lot of instructions through his own experience. The toughest part IMHO, is setting up the "pig tail and attaching it to your wireless NIC.. or card.
