More about the router

Edimax BR-6104KP is cheap Linux board with 2 USB ports, ethernet, 2 serial ports and some LEDs, which can be used as I/O pins (for example popular I2C interface). The project is well-documented, some sites can be seen below. If you are not an Linux-god, you can use pre-configured and compiled distributions as Midge. Router can be also used as a brain for robot:
