PIC-based project to monitor remote Wifi stations

David writes in with his – PIC-based project to monitor remote Wifi stations

It’s amazing what you can do with a 70 cent computer. Actually it’s amazing that there are 70 cent computers! The PIC12F510 is a complete computer – flash program memory, RAM, GPIO pins, internal clock and two A/D converter inputs in a tiny 8 pin chip. All for just 70 cents (Qty 100) from Digikey!

I am using a PIC microcontroller to help Yahel from AirJaldi monitor remote Wifi stations. You see AirJaldi runs a network of Wifi stations (access points and backbone links) in Northern India. Some of these are rather remote, like sitting on top of a temple half way up a mountain.
