Now that cantennas are, um, illegal in some parts, you're probably looking for a new method to boost power to your WiFi adapter on a budget. Well, start by getting mom's vegetable steamer, the one that always reminded you (us) of a spacecraft as a kid. Then, jam your USB adapter up in there (don't worry, it ain't too hard). Ah, what a wonderful combination, dear friends. Witness as Instructables shows you how to fully transform a lonely implement of better nutrition into a device you're slightly more likely to get some use out of. And when you're done you can use some of that money you saved on a real high-gain antenna to take yourself out for some fast food. Go ahead, y'earned it.
