Ugliest Airport


[click photo for gallery]
Along with a bunch of other stuff to play with (from Leigh, w00), I got a graphite Airport base station's motherboard. If you don't know, an Airport base station is a wireless access point from Apple. This particular one I got was the first Airport. It is actually a single-board 486 machine, with a standard Orinoco Wavelan Silver card. I'm not sure if it didn't really work when I got it, but I redid some flakey looking solder joints on the board, and it seems fine now. Its just missing its wireless card! So it won't be much of a wifi access point 'til I get one. Anyhow. Since most of the original plastic case pieces were thrown out, I stuck it in a generic project box. You can click the thumbnail above for the whole gallery.

I plan to do something similar and put an airport in a pelican case. So then I'd have a very weatherproof access point I can bring to Om fest and throw into a tree.

update: I got a wavelan card off ebay and put it in the airport, and now its working as an access point.

another update: I added indicator lights to the the box.
