I'd like to assemble a device that could accomplish the following:
- Connect to my home wifi (WPA2-Personal)
- Connect to my home PC with via Ethernet cable
- Able to send WoL signal to the PC when getting a signal over wireless connection
- The whole set up needs to be less than 45USD, desirably much less, otherwise I'd just buy a wireless bridge.
The goal is both to have a useful device (that will allow me to wake up my pc remotely) but also have fun learning something new (arduino).
I have no background in Arduino or Electronics in general. I program well though and learn fast.
Do you think Adruino is adequate for the above? Is soldering required (I'd rather not, or at least not a lot)?
