Peter Ha recommended this technique that he learned while working in his Uncle’s Tex Mex/Chinese Take Out place in Queens – actually I found it on Instructables. It’s called the Wok-Fi and it’s simply a dumpling strainer attached to a Wi-Fi dongle. If you’re hurting for Wi-Fi, this might be worth a try even though you’ll look like a total freak. Apparently this upped the signal reception and base station detection about 60% on the first try.
