Icrontic.com has just published a DIY article on cantennas. One reader, fed up with his poor wireless connection and short on cash, documents his adventure in home made networking.

"Have you ever been stuck outside of your fixed wireless network range left wondering what to do about it? Want to try a fun and easy little DIY project that works as a cheap, reliable alternative to a wireless repeater? Do what I did and build yourself a Cantenna! I was in a sticky situation recently. We had switched from a wired network to a wireless network, and I had just acquired a Nintendo Wii. However, our new wireless router, for whatever reason, did not put out a strong enough signal for either the Wii or my laptop to connect with. What to do, oh please God, tell me what to do!"
