The battery pack is not protected against under voltage if you connect the router directly to the battery.
glnc222 wrote:The Maxim IC mentioned with 45ma is a USB host device for a microcontroller, if I understand the datasheet. It does not include a wireless transceiver. So it would seem the power load could be mostly the microcontroller and especially the transceiver. As these are all included in the HAME etc. hot spots 300ma active, so maybe we don't have a full comparison yet?

you just setup the Hame's WAN and Wifi and give it your networks settings. Once it reboots you can telnet to it and run the following command to initiate the clean command
- Code: Select all
gpio l 8 0 4000 1 0 4000 && echo "Clean" > /dev/ttyACM0 && gpio l 8 4000 0 1 0 4000
On my A15 version i did not have gpio in the sys folders so I had to use this method.

Pavel.Kab wrote:So why do you think its all about your A15 version? Maybe its about using OpenWrt in the end?
undertoe wrote:Pavel, don't think you answered my question does what you have handle reading and writing to the USB? Are you actually checking the state of the device "GetButtons" "GetCharger" "GetErr" commands? Or are you simply just blindly throwing "Clean" command at it?
No, still have issue with tty controller in the gpio command line.Pavel.Kab wrote:So, does any one managed to make his own wifi control?
