i just came around this device
some other linux,.. )
for ~ 25€ you get gbit lan + 4 usb 2.0 ports + 1200Mhz of armv5 cpu + 128MB
ram + enough flash.
And as cheap (linux supported) usb-wifis start below 5€
you could get a complete setup with 4 wifis at ~40€ in total!
p.s. some cheap wifis: (based on rt3070 #1)
other (imho a bit more expensive) options are ar9271 #2 based usb sticks, or
maybe rtl8192 (like edimax EW-7811Un)
p.p.s an rp-sma antenna-socket makes an usb-stick much more "useable"
and such sticks do not cost much more:
or the ar9271 based TP-Link
#1 rt3070 i did already run myself on armv5 hardware (an edimax EW-771Usn on
#2 i did only use/try on x86 an not on arm, as my TP Link WN722N just draws
too much power, to keep me interested *G
but as ath9k_htc supports this chipset there should`t be much problems to
use it on a dock-star,..
