I have a project to boost a wireless signal but without touching the router and its antennae.
1st of all the router is above the cabinet which we can't reach.
2nd we are not allowed to touch the router which means we can't add extender or any other wires.
And 3rd we were asked to boost the signal in order to reach the targets and be creative. here's my illustration:
Plan A would cost less but the risk failing it... I think would be high.
I am planning on using aluminum card board, foils and tin cans as reflectors and to save money. so I plan to make a parabolic dish and some reflectors made up of aluminum.
Can my dish reach the targets or my reflector(s)? I don't know how analog/digital signal works but i think it would bounce in a strait line when ever it reflect.
Plan B would cost a lot but lower the risk... and unfair
and that is buying a repeater and install it at the center of the hallway.
Plan C is 50 50
and that is make an antenna that runs in battery's. but I don't know how to make one like a biquad wifi antenna.
I think using reflectors would be fun. any idea?
