Graphic LCD Display for you router.
This display will render simple graphics and text using a simple Serial Connection to do so.
The script that runs the display can display any stats, has a bandwidth graph(WAN or LAN, your choice), and a text queue that will display text that is put into the file (/tmp/textqueue.txt) - this is usefull if you have outhere script that you want you have alerts sent from.
This mod should work on any router with serial output on it.
This is the script I wrote to run the display, It still needs work, your input is welcome(please post)
Script found here
- ChromaLyte DX300 128x64 Serial Graphic LCD, i would recomend you look at the SparkFun Serial Graphic LCD 128x64
- NETGEAR WNR3500L
- Audio Jack(s)
- Audio Cable
How it works:
The LCD reads serial input that is output from the Router using (echo "this text or command is output" > /dev/console), the script I wrote should make all this easier.
What would a LCD demo be like without pics and a movie.
Sorry for the poor photo quality, my droids macro setting is not working.
