Apologies if this is a little bit off topic - more wireless than
linux, but it does look such a sweet tiny little linux AP, with the
possibility of auto meshing - if it can find another one to talk to, that is ..
I started looking for a WRT54Gxx for a AP at home but found reference
to a Meraki in my travels, so I then spent a enjoyable
evening trawling the Meraki website ... and other comments found on google.au
Looks a nice box, cheap (under $US50 - yea AU$ to US$ exchange rate)
... but the transport cost sadly looks equivalent to the cost of one unit ...
Anyone interested in getting some sent over and split the transport cost?
