Linksys WRT54GL turned RC monster truck

Jonathan Bennett is calling this $5 dollar RC car — a Linksys WRT54GL and a Panasonic Bl-C1A network camera soldered to its guts — a "WiFi Robot." I call it the only RC car I have ever wanted: it can be driven wirelessly by laptop from up to 500 meters away. A miniature Linksys monster truck to vroom around the neighborhood: it's so appropriate. The WRT54G series always has been the Big Foot family of routers.
