Default boosting bluetooth?

i want to look at this tut, but the link doesnt work.

http://www.hackaday.com/entry/2375141050548138/

where it says read, that is the broken link.

is there anything out there telling you how to boost your bluetooth? i have one of these, and i dont know if it is my palm or my dongle, but the range sux. it is definatley not 100 meters. i take off the plastic case and everything and it is ok....but it doesnt look professional.

lemme tell u something, the circuit board goes half way down the plastic case....and the attena is for show.

here are pics.




On the bottom pic, that zig zag line of metal, i think is the...eh...thing that gives off bluetooth connectivity.

so some type of attena or something would have to be soldered onto that.

um, i think that is all i want to say....

The zigzag is the antenna. It's metal.

Cover the whole thing in tinfoil? ( it may sound stupid but it could work?)
