DIY WiFi Antenna - Increasing the signal strength of WiFi modems.

Many people have issues with WiFi modems which can be attributed to the loss of the WiFi signal.
In many cases house roof and wall insulation attenuating the WiFi signal is a primary cause.
In many cases a cheap DIY antenna will give you enough gain to overcome the signal attenuation.
If you are having intermittent WiFi issues with your WDTV live box, it is worthwhile giving the following a try.

Nice pics; I would like to know:what distance can your D-link adapter talk back.
I've built a twin antenna for my Trendnet.
