  6. Place the can on a piece of cardboard creating a semicircle. Make sure each end of the can reaches the straight edge of the cardboard. Make a mark on the cardboard where each end hits.

  10. Cut the semi circle out and use it as a template to make another semicircle of the same size.
  11. Use a pen to make a hole in the center of each semicircle.
  12. Place one of the semicircles inside the curve of the aluminum can at one end and super glue in place. Hold in place until the glue is dry.
  13. Repeat on the other side. You may want to cut off any excess card board that is sticking out.
  14. Place over your wifi antenna and point in the direction you want the wifi signal to go.

Does the inside or outside of the can face the direction you want the signal to go?
