I am currently running on a G4 Mirrored door mac and use airport to connect. I dont have an internet connection but "borrow" from others who are close enough. A week ago my main connection moved across the street to a new building and i can no longer recieve their connection. My question is is there any way to boost my signal strength so i can pick up other connections that are farther away? I've heard of using a whip antenna, wireless repeater, usb adapter, etc but am not sure which or combo to get for fear of spending the money and not getting what i paid for. A recent post to consumerist.com suggested using a usb wifi adapter with a parabolic cooking strainer to boost your reception strength. While im a little skeptic of the idea im still not sure that even a usb wifi adapter will work with airport or if there is some other configuration i need. Any help or questions would be great. I need my internet!
