Build your own homemade Wi-Fi signal booster without spending much

I've been using this wifi extender for some time now and got about 50% increase in the wifi signal strength, that's not at all bad considering the fact that my room is really very far from the router. Please don't go by the looks of this device make one to see the result.


The device is called "WindSurfer" and is probably the cheapest and working WiFi booster available.
You would need the following items to make one
Gluestick, Sticky Tape
Scissor, Stapler
Aluminum Foil and WindSurfer Template

STEP 1.
Download WindSurfer Template
WindSurfer PDF file

STEP 2.
Resize the template using either MS Word, Paint etc. or Download The Resized Template
IMPORTANT : The bigger the size of WindSurfer the better will be the Wi-fi signal strength and range.

Once you have done the resizing, print the template.

STEP 3.
Now stick a cardboard behind the template, the cardboard must not be too hard use something that is flexible like a calender etc.
After you've stuck the cardboard, cut out the two parts. The first part will be the one which says "WindSurfer" and the second part will say "FreeAntennas.com".
Stick aluminum foil to the second part.


STEP 4.
Now cut slits in the second part using a knife. Then insert the slots from First Part into the slits. Use sticky tape and tape them nicely.


Finally pinch two holes where a plus sign appears.

There you go its done. place the WindSurfer on your WiFi antenna and check your Wifi Signal, you'll find an increase in signal bars.

    1. Mr Unknown did I really take credit for this? Did I ever mention in the article that I built it? I got the template from freeantennas.com thanks to Google. Freeantennas.com is mentioned in the template, did I change it to LimeTrip.blogspot.com to take the credit of someone elses work?

      I've never heard of dl.tv, but for me freeantennas is the founder of the trick. So next time u take the trouble to comment, pls check ur facts

  2. I had that Planters pistachios 250g pot made of aluminum, i just attached it to my wifi usb adapter and it got from 0%min/25%max to 48%min/60%max on 5ghz and about the same thing on 2.4ghz. It cost a little more but it easier to do and you got to eat pistachios, thats great!
