WhyFi

The Popular Science website has
a how-to article on assembling your own portable WiFi
hotspot
.WiFi in a backpack. Everything fits neatly into the
backpack but, my goodness, the equipment sure is expensive.
The parts list includes a wireless gateway costing $700USD
and a backpack going for $230. Surely, there are people out
there who can do better?

While buying equipment off-the-shelf is a quick way of
reaching your goal, I like to think there are electronic
geeks experts out there who can come up with home brew
equipment that will work as well, if not better, at a lot
lower cost.

  1. Nice concept. But I don’t see any reasonable argument for doing that with a backpack except for proving the concept.
