Ah, of course. I've seen the samples buttons before but it just didn't
occur to me that they would send them here ( doh, it's just a small
They have some nice I2c real-time clocks as well :)
Yeah, I have to agree with Andrew, KISS, though much easier sticking
something on the serial port of the WRT than trying to get hookup wire
on to some of those GPIO pins.
If you have the AVR connected via serial then you could either put a
max232 on the WRT and connect it there ( or remove the same from the
AVR board). What about the software on the Linux machine? if it's non
GUI then it should be straightforward porting.
I'm going to do a little TCP to serial ipkg in the next few weeks for
just this sort of thing. Easier to run apps elsewhere and use the
router to convert from one world to the other.
