First thing i did was flash dd-wrt firmware on it. Since FONera router has gpio pins i decided to use one of those pins to control AC loads or turn a switch ON/OFF remotely. There’s a similar/better way of controlling AC loads – check out dd-wrt wiki. However, i only had one NPN transistor some resistors and leds. So i decided to build a small circuit that will turn a switch ON and OFF thru the Router’s Web Interface. Now i can turn anything ON/OFF from anywhere in the world…..
