DIY WiFi Radio

Jeff Keyzer from mightyOhm has completed his DIY WiFi Radio build. The finish is fantastic but look closer, the case was built from scratch. Best of all it is based on a hacked router.

"I removed the USB and DC power jacks from the WL-520gU PCB.  I’m planning to use the USB port solely to talk to my SYBA USB-Audio adapter, so I removed the USB connector from the SYBA as well and wired the USB lines directly to the router.  Some people may disagree with this, but wiring directly to the router simplified the wiring inside the radio and saved space by eliminating unnecessary USB connectors."
