I am no expert, but here is a cost-efficient do-it-yourself
A guide on how to make a WiFi booster at home.
The guy has made a booster to ‘accept’ WiFi signals, so
he has used an “adapter” on his dish. In order to send
boosted signals, he suggests that you put a removable
antenna from a Wifi modem, in the center of your dish.
You will have to take aim and point the center of the dish
in the precise direction of your school, like a gun, from
the roof of your home, or some highrise next door, or
It’s pretty simple and straightforward and for a school
teacher, with resourceful pupils, shouldn’t be too hard to
put together. Just make sure you use a metal dish. Not
some fibre glass dish they use for getting StarPlus.

I have tried such tricks but none of them worked for me. Every metal is not able to receive signals of desired frequency.

I am just wondering, would a metal ‘tegari’, used by masons
in construction work (which is also shaped like a satellite dish)
work equally well in this setup, or do you need something with
holes, like this guy’s stainless steel strainer ?.
If so, anybody could use anything they have laying around,
that fits the bill, and be in business. I know we have had some
trouble with getting Qubee/WiTribe signals at our place. Could
we use this thing to boost our WiMax signals at home ?.

Signal boosters are available in markets. You may use them if your budget allows you.
