Awhile back I ordered two more cheap tiny routers (TP-Link 703N) off of eBay. They're very cheap (about $21) and compact, which is appealing when you're working on smaller projects involving an Arduino or the Raspberry Pi.

The routers arrived on Friday so today I flashed OpenWRT onto one of the new router. To my surprise, the latest version of OpenWRT now comes with the web interface (LuCI), which means no installing it from the command line. That's really convenient if I ever want to configure something that way.

Once flashed, the router needed to be configured as a wireless client. That means connecting to the wifi in the house and passing that connection through to the ethernet port. Luckily, thanks to an awesome Instructables page, I already have one of these routers connected to the Snail Mail Notifier so the setup was pretty easy. I just grabbed the config files from the existing router, changed a few static IP addresses, and I was up and running in a matter of minutes. I can't tell you how much easier that was the second time around.

So we now have a Raspberry Pi on the wifi. The setup may not be as pretty as this miniature wifi dongle, but I'm happy with it.


I was reading some of your content on this website and I conceive this internet site is really informative ! Keep on putting up.

Firstly, the 5GHz frequency won't let your wireless internet signal travel as far as a 2.4GHz frequency signal will. Since most common household appliances don't operate within the 5GHz frequency range, you will run into less interference which is nice, but you won't be able to take advantage of that signal from too far away. router with best range

Similarly, drill bits are usually fabricated with one of three compositions: solid high-speed steel (HSS), carbide tips, or solid carbide. router
