D-Link antenna boost
I recently hacked a beefier antenna into our D-Link DSL-2640R router, following this guide here. There was nothing complicated about it but I had to buy two things:
- A "U.FL to RP-SMA female" pigtail cable. I bought this one (ebay) for £2
- A beefier antenna. I bought this one (ebay) for £7.
Benefits: I can now watch Youtube videos on my iPad while lying in bed, I don't have to string cables into my study, and (hopefully) the XBox won't randomly stop streaming МУХА (video) songs from my desktop machine while I'm trying to beat da police.
D-Link equipment sucks, but I made it suck less!
