Nothing may be remarkable except for the size. It's smaller than LaFonera2100. The board size may be smaller than ubiquiti MiniStation.



Could you give us some more details on this AP?
- a picture of the AP's internals
- the UART and/or GPIO pinout
- the type of bootloader used

This is what we would like to use the WAP2102 for:

We've soldered an Arduino-compatible Wee board [red] to the serial pin headers of the fonera. The pinout of the serial header on the WAP2102 is different from the Fonera 2200, so we'll have to find a solution for this. More details on this setup can be found here.


The discussion might have continued from here.
