DIY: Boost your WiFi signal using a cell phone hack

Here is an awesome hack which allows you to boost your WiFi signal using your cell phone. Basically, the premise is to trick your computer into reading off of radio frequencies as well as Internet frequencies, by wrapping an ethernet cable around your cell phone. Very cool and effective. — Andrew Dobrow

  1. Are you serious? thats never going to work! its a hoax!

  2. @matt: ya never know until you try :-)

  3. Andrew,
    so…. what are the steps to try this? I am game…. thanks

  4. I tried this. It doesn’t work. There isn’t any way this could work.

  5. i swear it won’t work i tried i does nothing if u sure from ut post post the detailed steps to make it

  6. You must be nuts or an american teenage boy. that will N E V E R work. learn a few things about RADIO, then grow a brain in a jar, then teach it talk, then send it uni, cos it will be 1000000% better than your own. CRETIN!

  7. @radio engineer The whole point is that the guy does a series of fake tech shows.

  8. Hey everyone it totaly works!!! I tried it and it picks up twice as many networks as before.

  9. Details plz !! Does the cable need to be plugged in at the time of use. BTW, how are u supposed 2 dial with the numbers all wrapped up by the cable??? It just doesn’t make sense.

  10. funniest joke ive heard in a while

  11. Funny, Posting is even funnier. ^_^
    If you tried it then that’s the funniest.

    First of all network cable can’t and even won’t able to detect radio freq. Even the computer don’t care about any freq. unless you installed a radio tuner but still network cable is no way to do the receiving.

    Study hard before you could understand, i’m assuming you’ve read an article about hacking a ATM machine using the procedure you’ve said but you’ve thinking the wrong way.

    Wifi signal boosting can only be done either by using a stronger wifi router or using an extra wifi repeater on the transmitter side while on the receiving side using an extra wifi signal collector like a parabolic dish which is better in receiving wifi signal is good.

  12. Fail admin is fail, totally works. Doesn’t read radio signals tards, cellphone is program to detect all frequencies of all networks and yada yada yada with sim cards and satelites n shit, therefore your cellphone can pick up the signals that nebouring routers pick up and read them. SO
    I CAN SEE DIPSTICKS ROUTER BROADCASTING SIGNAL
    DIPSTICKS ROUTER CAN SEE ROUTER I CANT SEE FROM ITS POSITION
    CELLPHONE TEACHES COMPUTER HOW TO READ SIGNAL C FROM SIGNAL B
    -END
