This is the Cantenna how-too. I have a friend who made a cantenna and used an old satellite dish and put the cantenna where the feedhorn was. He says it works better but if it did he must have got lucky because alot more variables come into play with a reflector type antenna.

If you try something like this see if there is a way to modify the original feedhorn for 2.4ghz. I have always wondered if that could be done. Perhaps a poorly tuned, but properly positioned, feedhorn would work as well as the cantenna with a dish.
