    Reflector. Can also be done by putting foil on the wall behind your router.

    You lose all signal behind the router though.

    I concur. Unless you’re mounting this on one side of your house, you’re going to have a dead spot.

    I think I’ll stick with my windsurfer antenna reflector.

    I was bored so I tried adding this to an extra wireless router. I left the laptop (with built-in wireless card) and the router in their respective locations, and only added the soda can. I saw a minimal improvement. I also had an old computer case laying around. So I took off the soda can, and instead placed the metal covering sleeve from the computer case behind the router. I saw the same improvement in signal strength, which was basically negligible. It was not worth it to me, to actually use the can. Just my experience. . .
