I've seen several posts here about the IOSoft device where you can make a PCMCIA WLAN adapter with a PIC18F452. I wish I can just add onto those news threads, but it seems that after a month or so, then they become read-only.
Anyways, back to Iosoft's PCMCIA WLAN-on-a-PIC adapter: Has anyone used it? Also, I noticed that we can buy a development board, and license the TCP/IP stack and PCMCIA driver if we go forward with it.
Can someone give a guesstimate of how much all the major hardware in that solution costs? I do know that the PIC18F452 alone costs ~$6.50 USD. Can the hardware be constrained down to $20 USD?
