    The first wifi module that comes close to the Ministation from Ubiquiti.

    If you want an USB interface with Linux support, look at this:

    nice project name! and nice project too!
    i’d like to see more about serial interfaces, i2c, spi, i2c, ecc ecc.
    i think they’re the main reason to choose boards like this, for the sake of facts i bought a tp-link cheap and small wifi router (TL-WR703N) for 15 bucks (shipping included), can run openwrt, usb port, and so on, a small cheap fun device, but it has no accessible serial ports, so this one would be a nice alternative.
    just my 2 cents.

    This thing has only one Ethernet port? What’s up with that?

    So this thing is called “Carambola”. FYI, in Indonesian, “Blimbing” is the name for Carambola.
