New WiFi Chip Can 'Steer' Signals

A 20 to 45 percent increase in signal strengh just by using a WiFi chip originally developed for cellphones? Sounds good to me.

A San Diego company called Ethertronics believes its new "active antenna" chip originally developed for cellphones can solve slow WiFi connections, though. Even better, the company says the EtherChip can extend your connection's range and make sure there's decent signal throughout your house even without the use of boosters.
