Boosting WiFi reception.

Post by Charlie » Thu Sep 27, 2018 5:45 am

The Labour Party in the UK who are in opposition at the moment are talking about putting free fast WiFi in every shopping centre.

I was just wondering what kind of rig would be best to exploit this free resource, from some distance. I imagined some kind of antennae with booster.

Cheers

Keep connection hurry using ping or use some net-radio at the same time.

An example about net-radio:

Code: Select all

Looks like I am going to try a USB Yagi antennae, unless I see or hear of anything better. I may need to relocate.
