My Ethernet Gateway with custom case.
Thought i would share my Ethernet Gateway in a custom case.
The board is a itead iboard http://imall.iteadstudio.com/im120410001.html since i mounted this one in a case no modifications were needed to the board to connect the radio module.
The case is actually a modified HP MSM320 wireless access point http://www.zdtronic.com/images/MSM325.jpg which i cut down and sprayed black. As luck would have it the Ethernet + Power line up perfectly with the existing holes. There were even 3 existing holes which i simply had to drill out to for the larger LEDs.
So far i have tried the serial gateway based on a Nano & a Ethernet Gateway with a ENC28J60 and this is by far the most reliable solution.

Thanks for the feedback !
Forgot to mention if your from Australia and looking for relatively cheap local itead supplier i can recommend http://www.monkeyboard.org/shop/
Prices are more expensive but they can deliver in 1-2 days.

Nice project. I am am interested in two things:
- I want to use the same board. Can you tell what modifications you did to the gateway software to get this working. I guess you are using the analog inputs on the board configured as digital outputs to drive the leds.
- The case is nice, but it is on sale for $270 (with a HP wireless access point inside).. How did you get the case?
There are enough digital pins to drive the 3 leds.
As for the case i just happened to have a box of them from an old wireless upgrade project. at work. Maybe check ebay for some non working/old ones ?
