How To Increase Your Wi-Fi Signal Range

This Infinite Solutions video may look like a blast from the past 80's video, but I assure you- it's anything but that! If you're away from your home base and want to connect to an unprotected wireless signal, this short video provides some great tips to help you do this.

By using your cell phone, laptop, an ethernet cable or a salad bowl with aluminum foil, you can increase network availability and extend your wireless range. Now I can finally go set up shop with my laptop in that beautiful park near my house! Yay!

Has anyone really tried this? I really don't think wrapping your phone with an ethernet cable is going to transmit some sort of signal that will increase your wi-fi.....
