Boosting WIFI

Here's a cheap and easy way to increase the signal. Rather clever, I thought.

what does a digital TV antenna add-on have to do with WiFi?

a router sends WiFi signals, a TV antenna has nothing to do with WiFi or boosting it.

No reason why that will not work as advertised.

It will be VERY directional and you must point the opening of the "reflector" exactly at the wireless access point antenna to get any boost however. This takes an "omnidirectional" (all around) USB antenna and makes it directional. In fact the reception behind the reflector will be nonexistent.
