Wi-Fi antenna extender hack

Technology

You know that someone is going to cry fraud any time there’s a how-to on extending wi-fi range. And this one is no exception (read the Comments). I don’t know why people doing these projects don’t show before and after readings on a signal strength meter to prove their claims. I’m not a radio engineer or a ham, so I can’t really judge without trying this out for myself on a spare antenna. I’d be interested to know what MAKE readers think who have experience in this area.
