Recently we highlighted the TP-Link TL-WR703N in a post. Some makers have used a WiFi shield to allow an Arduino to communicate with this router, and others have used the router’s PCB as a shield bridging Ethernet to Wifi. Martin wanted to interface an Arduino with the router directly, so that it could be used […]

TL-WR703N, TL-WR720N & TL-MR3020 images + secret sauce

Madox uploaded several firmware images for the TL-WR703N, TL-WR720N & TL-MR3020, get them from the Madox Google Code page: Based on OpenWRT r36503, it has the new 3.8.10 kernel as well as the new LuCi theme.  Due to the slowly expanding size of the kernel and the packages, I had to drop 3G out from […]

BitBltBlade – WiFi controlled POV lightsaber

The BitBltBlade uses the hackable TP-Link TL-WR703N router and Kean’s USB Expander board to wirelessly control a strip of RGB LEDs. The concept of operation is that the user would use their smartphone which can upload photos […]
