    Hi!

    I want to extend my wireless coverage for my macbook so that I can connect to wireless networks further away.

    I have looked at the antenna from quickertek but it´s so damn expensive..

    My question is, is there anyway to build such a antenna myself?

    Thanks a lot in advance! :)

    Hey. Below is a hack my friend used for his PB back in the day to boost the normally horrible signal strength. I don't know if it would translate well to the MacBook Pros as I'm not as familiar with them as the PBs. And it will probably void warantee...make that definitely.

    You can always buy a signal booster from your local electronics store. I bought one and I now can litterly walk down the street and still pick up my network!
