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


    “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...
