Boosting wireless signal - 'booster' no better

  shepherd 20:26 13 Jun 2005

I'm 'sharing' a Broadband connection with a neighbour (with her approval!). As I was unable to get a signal at times, I bought an extension aerial with a 3ft lead and magnetic base. I notice no increase in signal although the aerial is reckoned to give out a better signal than the original basic aerial that screws into the back of the LAN card. Assuming I do not get my own router, is it possible to increase the signal a little more (... with a television aerial? - or don't LAN cards work that way?)

try a couple of these, I went form a 20% signal to 60% with one, dead simple to make but it can be time consuming, finding the right place for it.
