1.First install your usb wireless adapter driver and utility on your pc or laptop. 2. Punch a hole on the center of your cookware cover or strainer (parabolic) just enough to fit the female end of your usb extension and to hold it in place. 3. plug the usb adapter to the usb female end at the center of the parabola (as illustrated) then to the usb socket. 4. aim at the nearest wifi hotspot / router. 5. check if you're connected. NOW SURF THE INTERNET FOR FREE!

What an innovation! But do we need some changes to make with our PC, for example, the TCP/IP and other configurations? I plan to follow your tips if it works in our place. Is this not illegal somehow? Will they (the company which gives wifi services) be able to monitor for illegal users? Please elaborate

with windows xp, it needs no extra configuration, or just use the wireless utility of ur adapter.in most countries,there are no laws that prohibit this. try it.

i think an access point without security means that they are willing to share their connection or that they jst dont know how to secure it.

how far will the router be able to transmit the waves so I can receive the signal in my place? how many meters/kilometers can the router cover?

based in my experience, boosting your wireless signal does not mean you will be able to have free internet connection unless you are trying to connect to your neighbor's unprotected wireless network , but protected or not protected as long as you connect to it and use that resource without your neighbor's knowledge or permission is considered thief. yes it is, it's just like driving your neighbor's car parked in front of your house because he forgot to lock the car doors.

yes these are different things and i am not talking of what's right and what's not here.it's up to you and what you believe .some people are willing to share their signal like you.some do not.some do this thing called wardriving and lurks into other's wireless network,stealing passwords and credit card passes and that's a different thing.all i want to say is that i tried it and it worked,no mention if i am right or if i am not.and i believe that if everyone in every household/establishments will share their access point,i think it would be easier for us to communicate without spending much.of course there would still be the threat of hackers,a greater threat.using this "poor man's wifi" antenna doesn't mean being a thief,it all depends on the person and your morality can guide you.
