Our family utilized a free wifi connection at one point in time when we moved from one home to another. The new home was near a faint wifi signal but the signal was so faint we could not use it to surf the net. We decided to make our own free long range wifi antenna to see if we could pick up the signal better for usage. Upon placing a usb wireless dongle in the center of a large steel bread-mixing-bowl and placing it in a window where the wireless signal was strongest we were able to surf the net for free. Our free wireless internet access enabled us to surf at speeds bursting to 2.8 +/- mb/s. Quite good for a free wifi connection.
