My Cantenna works better
on January 12, 2011
I guess this antenna might work good for some and not for others. For my application, getting wifi from open networks this antenna did no better than my cantenna. Yes, it sees more networks. But who cares how many networks any antenna sees, it's all about connecting. I'm sure this antenna is great for line of site applications.
My cantenna works way better and is smaller for indoor use. Find a can that is 3" to 5" in diameter, at least 6" long and drill a hole about 2"-3" from the rear of the can and stick a 2" standard stubby antenna inside. Hot glue it in place and presto, you'll have an amazing antenna.
Again, the above antenna is huge, well built, and well worth the price. I'm one that finds it interesting to try different kinds of antennas. So far my homemade cantennas work the best for me.
