Whether you need a range extender or repeater or a booster, this hack is for you. All you need is an aluminium CAN for this.

The hacks discussed here can boost up the Wifi signals by 25% and increase the internet speed.

Location- If you want your Wifi signals to be spread across the house, it is suggested to place the wifi router at a central location. This is because the waves from wifi router develop in a circular motion to spread evenly on both the sides.

Position- There are a lot of times when people end up placing the wifi routers either on the floors or in storerooms surrounded by other things. This results in weakening the strength of the wifi signals. The correct position to place the wifi router is at a height from the ground level in an open space with no hindrance.

Wifi Extender Hack – Homemade

For making a Wifi Extender at home easily, you need an empty and dried cold drink can, and if a can is not available, in that case, you can even use aluminium foil. Preferably use a cold drink can as its surface is smooth and is more durable than the foil.

All the items used for this hack are easily available at home – Wifi router, empty cold drink can, electric tape, a marker, meter scale, a pair of scissors and a cutter.

  1. Take the cola can and make markings as shown in the video to cut the bottom side.
  2. Make a mark on the opposite side of the opening of the can. Extend a straight line till the bottom corner and mark a semi-circle on both sides of this straight line.
  3. Now, take a cutter and a pair of scissors and cut there can along the markings. Be careful while cutting.
  4. After cutting the centre portion along the straight line, open the can wide.
  5. Using an electric tape, cover the sharp edges of the open can as prevention.
  6. Your antenna reflector is ready. Place it right behind the Wifi router to spread the signals evenly in all the directions.
