What is the absolute cheapest way to get a Raspberry Pi-style board, which has WiFi, and the ability to provide constant power using solar or other renewable means?
Or even just a really long-lasting battery rather than even renewable energy?
I am looking for links to products that I can buy
1. Board
2. WiFi
3. Power source
By the way, the WiFi chip must have the ability to run a relay... i.e. to be used to receive WiFi from a hotspot, and also to be used as a hotspot itself at the same time.
The device needs to do very little other than receive a WiFi connection and then repeat it in a relay-style, i.e. create a mobile hotspot.

you've got some good advice here already; https://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,162286.msg965352.html#msg965352

do you want to see how that Forum pans out first?

Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.

Due to the potential for conficting and erroneous suggestions...it is not wise to post the same computer issues in multiple forums.


I suggest you pursue your topic elsewhere to completion...before initiating the same topic here at BC.
