Wireless networking anybody?

How to boost a signal to a blind spot.

We have a wireless network that works really well. Due to the nature of the office it took some jigging to get the best possible signal to all machines. The problem is we have a bit of a blind spot that we can't get around.

Does anybody know of a good product, preferably cheap, that could boost the signal to this one machine? We get great recepton to the rest of the office so we don't really need to boost the overall reception if this is not necessary.

Cheers

I believe it was via Chris Pirillo's LockerGnome [lockergnome.com] site.

Supposidly, they work as good -- if not better -- than commercial solutions. There are arguements over which type of can works the best. A standard US 5lb can of coffee is suppose to do the trick as good as any.

Excellent, If nothing else I will have a blast trying this and the look on the boss's face should be a picture. :o
