In the last week or so i've been thinking on the design of the Daleklone. How to build it, what materials to use and so forth. I have modified the project picture with a rough layout of the robot's internals. My first priority is the base, a dust sucking robot isn't particularly usefull if it's incapable of moving around.
I've actually got three TP-Link routers, the WR703 type. All of them bricked in one way or the other. I brought the first one back to life, this one was missing the micro-usb connecter and thus could not be powered. It was an easy fix, i cut an old usb cable, soldered the power wires to the regulator and added some hot glue to keep it in place. I've designated this one as a bacup device. The other two routers are more seriously injured. Someone has tried to access the console port on one of them and severly damaged the TX trace on the board. I don't think i'll be able to restore that one. The last one just doesn't boot. I'll try to get ot back to life over the console. The next step is to get one of these thinsg connected to an atmega over i2c.
