Goofy ideas that make sense…

I have a wireless network at home. I don’t like its limited range. And I’ve been thinking about buying an “official” range extender from my access point’s manufacturer [1].

But when I saw this range extending antenna [2], I nearly jumped right in and ordered it.

The idea of an antenna based upon a hacker’s toy [3] (using a Pringles or similar can to get extra WI/FI range) strikes me as very intriguing. And the Cantenna seems, on the surface at least, to be based on some reasonably sound antenna principles.

I might still buy one, even if I’m not sure whether it really works. The concept appeals to me, and its not outrageously priced 😉
