For those of you lucky enough to get ClearWire’s 4G internet service, you might still have trouble getting full signal if you happened to live in suburban neighborhoods.
But I guess there’s a pretty cheap fix for that, you can actually increase your signal a LOT by using a tinfoil and making an antenna sorta like above. I used to use this method actually for my wifi router couple years back, I think it works for 4G modems probably because they are wireless. Cool.
Lo and behold, as soon as I put that tinfoil dish behind our modem, the signal jumped from an unreliable one bar all the way up to FOUR BARS, higher than I think we had ever received before, and it didn’t go down all day. Had my crazy idea really worked?
