    Hello, I live in an apartment where we're not supposed to put up
    antennas for wireless signals. I'm trying to share wireless internet
    with a neighbor. I was thinking of hiding a cantenna in a flower
    planter. I was wondering if putting it in the planter will allow me to
    receive wireless signals well. Thanks.

  2. Hi
    As long as the Front side is not masked by the flowers it should be OK.

    I part coated an apprx 7 inch thin wall plastic flower pot
    with kitchen aluminium foil, and used a ZyDas based USB
    wireless adapter (9.99 UKPDS inc P&P) does what you
    want, fantastic. Worth a try.
