Convert Your Router to a WiFi Radio


Jeff Keyzer took an Asus WL-520gU Wireless Router and turned it into a DIY WiFi Radio. He removed the USB connector and wired it directly to simplify things. The cabinet was built from scratch by one of his neighbors. Excluding the case, it only cost him $147.09. Check out his other materials and instructions if you would like to duplicate his efforts. Nice job, Jeff.
