TL-WR702N as Arduino shield

Dirk has written an article detailing how to make a simple Arduino wireless shield using  the TL-WR702N wifi router:

There’s always the need for cheaper Arduino equipment and there’s always the need for wireless activities in your project. But an Arduino wireless shield costs much. Everyone of us has got an ethernet shield. They are good but not wireless. Well. Let’s see if we can improve this. At first you need an ethernet shield and a wireless router TL-WR702N. (both 30-35€ that’s half as much as the wireless shield here in Germany costs)

Via Lucadentella.

    its in addition to ethernet shield – why would you want to do that EVER?
    either replace ethernet shield with router, or dont touch the router, taking pcb out of enclosure is POINTLESS when all you connect to it is power and ethernet
