Green Wifi – The solar Wi-Fi grid project

Interesting OpenWRT project – “The approach of the Green-WiFi project is to use software, hardware, and components easily available and low cost, but assembled and compiled to make smart use of technology. Following the MIT roof net approach, this project is using off the shelf hardware from Netgear and open source wireless grid software. The Netgear WGT634U Wi-Fi router is based on a Linux. The unit powered by a Shell solar panel. Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless grid router: OpenWRT-based WGRT634U 802.11b/g router – Netgear, Linux 2.6 kernel, madwifi-ng driver, OpenWRT ipkg support” [via] – Link.
