Ive been building a cantenna so my sister who lives 5 houses down on the \nother side of the road can access my internet. At the moment I am using \nan imitation pringles (Mr Chip or something) can.\n\nI have no problem with my laptop but my sisters Aluminum Powerbook is \nmarginal at best. Some research has revealed that the pringles type can \nis not really ideal for a cantenna and I would like to replace it with \nsomething else.\n\nUsing [URL]http://www.turnpoint.net/wireless/cantennahowto.html[/URL] as a guide I \nam looking for a can at least 3" wide but no more than 3.5" and the \nlonger the better. The less wide the can is the longer it needs to be, \nso a 3.5" can only need so be a bit over 6" high while a 3" can needs to \n be almost 12" high.\n\nDoes anyone know what sort of products available in NZ I would be \nlooking for to get suitable cans? A look around Pak'n'Save revealed very \nfew suitable cans.\n\nWhat did other cantenna builders in NZ use?
