Versatile device with many useful functions. Perfect for trips and to give your arduino a cheap wireless interface. Even more powerful with openwrt. Very well built and packed. It can work as a little repeater. Can be greatly modded.
Chinese user interface. You have to be very careful when searching for another firmware. Very likely to brick your device if you choose a non compatible firmware version to your build. Useless english manual. Search the internet for more information.
Mine came with "v1.6" firmware printed on the label, but inside (in the webgui) it wasn´t. It was Built 121204, Release: 3.14.4 - Chinese. I loaded the following firmware: openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr703n-v1-squashfs-factory.bin From this site: http://downloads.openwrt.org/attitude_adjustment/12.09/ar71xx/generic/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-tl-wr703n-v1-squashfs-factory.bin It took a while to start loading, but once it did, it was a really easy procedure, and the new webgui (LuCi) appeared without further configuring. I´m not responsible if you brick your device. Do a little resarch first. Watch out for the build version. It´s a good idea to buy the serial adaptor in case you brick your device.
Buy it!
