    Summary:
    An inexpensive device could finally solve the problem of improving wireless signal strength and security for indoor spaces with multiple rooms.

    Excerpt:

    “After testing the approach in two different interiors for signal strength and speed, the researchers reported that optimized 3-D reflectors provide numerous benefits including: strong physical security, low cost, and ease of use for non-expert users.
    The researchers tested the reflector with a variety of off-the-shelf Wi-Fi access points, including those using the latest Wi-Fi protocol 802.11ac.

    "With a simple investment of about $35 and specifying coverage requirements, a wireless reflector can be custom-built to outperform antennae that cost thousands of dollars," said Zhou.”

    People have done something similar with cardboard covered in aluminum foil, to make an omni-directional antenna profile more uni-directional. There are lots of YouTube videos.
    I am in no way entitled to your opinion...
