Not sure if this is a good idea - AFAIR, Oliver Bartels did some
measurements on pringles-based cantennas in the german c't magazine and
came to the result that it worked noticeably worse than a properly sized
If you have no special requirements regarding directionality, a simple
dipole should be easy to build (or pull off an old 2.4GHz-only WLAN device).
Otherwise, I have had good success (for WLAN operation) with both a
"real" cantenna like these:
and with a bi-quad like this:
(but without the dish).
