Solar Power for Wi-Fi Repeater
Some years ago I developed a solar-powered surveillance camera with data transmission by Wi-Fi or GSM network with SIM card. However, some users wanted a Wi-Fi model with greater range.

This miniscule box functions primarily as an Ethernet/Wi-Fi router, but it can be configured as a repeater. I have tested several versions of this model and it works perfectly — with the exception of those purchased in China (in which the ROM is exclusively in Chinese, and not flashable to English.
