Where to buy (on Ali)

A project log for Fun with wifi repeaters

WiFi repeaters are getting super cheap now ($5!) and can contain quite open hardware. Try to make the most out of the QCA953X based ones.

There are several vendors that sell this type of repeater for very low prices. Here is a list of links where I bought mine, and confirm that they contain the QCA9533 (but that is not a guarantee that yours will!) (I've been ordering the EU-whiite variant)

UPDATE: I receiver a total of 7 from above shop now, 6 with QCA9533 and one with QCA9531. The latter is the same as the 33, except it has additional USB and PCIe! Let's see if I can get that broken out, that would open up a whole lot of opportunities, especially the USB.

This is still the cheapest I can find (less than 5 euros including shipping), and seems reliable qua hardware.

I received one from now as well, also QCA9533.

This will be my last order for a while, with 8 on my bench I'm already having a hard time putting them all to use.
