Is there any interest in DIY info for cabling and configuring a WiFi TCP/IP module to rs232 for scope control?

There is a commercial module available that provides all functions on a small PCB (less than 1.1x2 inches), just add cables, power and case and software config of the module itself. No, I do not make this module, it is from a large embedded processor vendor.

Compatible with smartphone apps that use TCP/IP like SkySafari and on Android (access point), IOS(access point and ad-hoc).

Hi Tom,

Check for a PM.

Anyone else? It will be more than a little work to put together a project page for this geared at different levels of expertise of the DIY'er. High expertise would only need the config information, full details for no low expertise DIY would gear out to cable, connector, case, etc parts numbers and sources in additions to configuration info.
