Like I said, I couldn't find a manual. However, it is uses a 12V wall
wart, what current does it draw?
If a repeater would do the job (rather than a bridge), SMC has some
boxes that run off of 5V @1A.
The product is described as a bridge, but it lists repeater in the
modes. I'm not much for the details of networking, but I know there is
The big expense in this project will be the solar cells, so you want to
get as low of power on the electronics as possible.
I couldn't find a manual on-line for this device, but I have run a
Dlink DWL-900AP+ wireless on batteries. The factory supplied power
supply is a 5V switch-mode wallwart. For simplicity, I built my
portable device to run from 6 C cell nicads, then used a low drop-out
voltage regulator that I built using a Texas Instruments chip. [If
relevant, I can dig up the number.]
If you are going to use an off the shelf 12V solar system, you will
need to build a DC/DC converter to reach 5V, most likely a buck
Not for the WRT54GS. 12 volts is fine.
