Need a WiFi boost? grab a beer!
No I am not suggesting you get drunk, lol. And if you have been drinking, back up slowly and walk away from the computer and no one will get hurt! (namely you :)) A Soda can works just as good, just so you know..hahaha

I think this how-to is very comical yet informative, works pretty good too!! Hope it helps 🙂
I love a good hack, especially one that requires me
to throw back a cold one before hand (or during). This simple
wifi boosthas actually been shown to increase signal strength by at least 2
to 4 bars. And, well, I will drink to that.
These instructions came to us via The
Chive and we think they are most definitely worth checking out. But here is
the most important question: what kind of beer will you use?
For this project you are going to need scissors, a utility knife, some
adhesive putty and an empty beer can. More than one empty beer can is acceptable
but don’t kid yourself, the router only needs the one.
The first step is to wash out your empty beer can, unless of course said beer
is a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. If it is PBR, promptly go drink a better beer.
You really should be ashamed of yourself.
Once the can has dried, you will want to remove it’s pull tab.
Only perform this next step if you have not been drinking. Using the
utility knife, saw off the bottom of the can. Chances are your can will not have
a red dotted line. If you see one, put down the knife…you’ve had too much
You’ll notice in the above step that the can’s pull tab has returned.
Clearly, there are only two possible reasons for this. One, you are really drunk
and you never removed the tab in the first place. Or–the more likely answer–beer
cans can regenerate themselves.
It’s the home stretch! You just need to attach your modded beer can to the
wifi router. Hopefully no other parts of the can have actually grown back. You
now have beer-fi!
So, what kind of beer did you use?
