i had doubts about this homemade antenna esp since its homemade with a piece of paper and some tinfoil, but I made one. I started with a 47% wifi strength as stated from the Ps3 network connection test. After I made the antenna, I added it onto my router and surprisingly got and extra 20% boost in wifi strength. I took off the antenna and checked several times jsut to make sure it's not a fluke or anything and sure enough there is a noticable difference.
So if u guys want an extra boost in wifi strength check it out! I was so happy about this i decided to make a thread bout it. My very first thread btw!

I have the orange live box. Yes boo me boo me. But it's working great with ps3 lately and that doesn't have an external ariel/arial
You can also try installing DD-WRT on your router and boosting the signal. Just make sure you can cool it - overclocking routers FTW! Just make sure you do so legally .
EDIT - Looks like the comments on that site suggested my idea. I guess I'm not that original...60GB PS3 on 11/17/06

Sure, wire it
I did wireless for awhile and though it was a pain, I finally wired it and the internet is 5x better and smooth now
I tried that. It didn't work. But umm.. Is tinfoil the same as normal foil?"This life is not real. I conquered the world and it did not bring me satisfaction." -Muhammad Ali
