Boost Your 3G Broadband Signal with Kitchen Tools

Having signal problems with your wireless broadband like what fellow GameOPS editor Euri is experiencing? Filipino photographer Florentino Calutan has a simple solution for your problems using simple kitchen tools.

Using a strainer, aluminum foil and a M/F USB extension cable, Florentino constructed a parabolic dish (similar to a satellite dish) capable of increasing the signal of any wireless broadband USB device you are using (even Wi-Fi). In theory, a parabolic dish can collect and amplify energy in its "focal" point. This point is most likely located at the center so let's construct your little dish.

Get your strainer and make a hole at the center. Insert and glue the M/F USB extension cable on the hole you just made. You can immediately use this by inserting the USB modem at the center of the strainer and plugging the other end of the cable to your computer's USB port.

You can also wrap the strainer with aluminum foil for a much stronger signal gain. But since this is a parabolic dish, you may want to point your little signal booster to the location of your operator's cellsite or your wireless router (if using a Wi-Fi connection).

A similar DIY instruction set for signal boosting can be found at Instructables.
