-Wi-Fi Shield Improvisation. What are the chances of success?
I have put apart an wireless internet client, and show you the picture of the full circuit in attachment bellow.
How possible would it be to convert this circuit into a Wi Fi Shield for Arduino - just as a project.....of course it is easier to buy it which eventually I will, as soon as zumo starts running on IDE.
On the component side, the chips are protected by tent-like aluminum structure blocks so you can nopt see anything...and I haven't yet attempted to remove these covers (I might need some special tool, as they do not seem to be welded, nor screwed and each side of each one covering a chip a cpu or something, has two tiny holes (needle tip size)...ps - whats the safest way to remove those...infact I will include a photo of the other side as well.
Its an 80 AUD, Optus wireless device for internet connection through 801.xx protocol. or 802.xx or shmilar...
Now, its a computer circuit ready for my new project...what would be the way to make this the woireless shield for zumo?
In order to work, it would be as an option, connected by USB to computer...or, second option, fully charged, let it find the computer wirelessly.
This means that, since the protocolls are australian, the best way to connect it, would be by USB to Arduino by some kind og male-male USB cable, which leaves another male connection open for Arduino-Computer data/power connection. Since wireless signal is data, in essence, is it possible to use the above suggestion without any programming and hope that Arduino would recognise the device as wireless to use...
How is the original Wi-Fi shield integrated into the story? Maybe, an overly optimistic idea for project??!
 Computer  Arduino  Wireless (generic)
<- Computer to Arduino USB (female-to-male)
both connections above could be setup with some kind of USB adapter. Are they selling....? As I mentioned above, male-to-male, leaving one female side open. I should draw the idea and upload the sketch within this comment.
<--> Male-to-Male USB (if there is one) from Arduino to Wireless
or just let Arduino pick up wireless signal WiFi (no need for USB) [to do with protocolS, NOT JUST 801.xxx.x
or solder another usb socket where the wireless shield is connected probably some pins -- are they all taken in zumo -- NOW, HOW DO YOU ADD MORE SHIELDS TO ZUMO AND ARDUINO IF ALL PINS ON ARDUINO ARE TAKEN, FOR EXAMPLE A WIRELESS SHIELD??!!!
