Boost Your WiFi Signal Using Only a Beer Can
I love a good hack, especially one that requires me to throw back a cold one before hand (or during). This simple wifi boost has actually been shown to increase signal strength by at least 2 to 4 bars. And, well, I will drink to that.
For this project you are going to need scissors, a utility knife, some
adhesive putty and an empty beer can. More than one empty beer can is acceptable but don’t kid yourself, the router only needs the one.
Once the can has dried, you will want to remove it’s pull tab.
Only perform this next step if you have not been drinking. Using the
utility knife, saw off the bottom of the can. Chances are your can will not have a red dotted line. If you see one, put down the knife…you’ve had too much beer.
You’ll notice in the above step that the can’s pull tab has returned.
Clearly, there are only two possible reasons for this. One, you are really drunk and you never removed the tab in the first place. Or–the more likely answer–beer cans can regenerate themselves.
It’s the home stretch! You just need to attach your modded beer can to the wifi router. Hopefully no other parts of the can have actually grown back. You now have beer-fi!
So, what kind of beer did you use?
