Discovery Channel's Jerry Stone brings to attention this little gem from The Chive which shows you how to "boost signal strength by at least 2 to 4 bars" using nothing more than a can of beer.
From the article:
I love a good hack, especially one that requires me to throw back a cold one before hand (or during). This simple wifi boost has actually been shown to increase signal strength by at least 2 to 4 bars. And, well, I will drink to that.
These instructions came to us via The Chive and we think they are most definitely worth checking out. But here is the most important question: what kind of beer will you use?
For this project you are going to need scissors, a utility knife, some adhesive putty and an empty beer can. More than one empty beer can is acceptable but don't kid yourself, the router only needs the one.
