Can I buy a signal booster of the shelf? Currently I'm using my wife's largest pot on it's side like a reciever dish supported with two rolled up towels. It's pointing to the Vodafone tower (out of sight) and it makes some improvement. I hang the vodem stick from the top with insulation tape so it is hanging in the center of the pot as a feed head on a dish receiver.
I sometimes have one bar here where the vodem stick sits in my router (on my home network). The signal drops off repeatedly and I often get little more than dial-up speed for my NZ$70 a month. I must improve this.
