Hi,I am new to arduino usage and was thinking of building a Home automation project. I wanted to know if it is possible to use the serial port in linksys router ( after hacking it to give one) to give control information to the arduino.I basically wish to connect the system to a tablet wirelessly and the tablet will have an app to control the house automation rules.This will get passed on to a linksys router( cheap and easy to hack) whihc can send the information to arduino and arduino can control using the RF modules(434hz) to operate the elecricla systems in the house.If you could guide me to any suitable links or could contribute to this idea would be glad to hear form you.
With ethernet shields available now for $12.28 shipped, I'd skip modifying a router.http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Ethernet-Shield-W5100-For-Arduino-328-UNO-mega-1280-2560-/180911603176?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a1f2bfde8
