I bought a W-LAN router (TP-Link TL-WR710n) since it has an USB port. I assumed I can use it as WLAN and power supply as well.
After I configured the WLAN router to be able to get Access to the Internet with my Netduino 2 Plus, I was happy and started to coding a bit further. All works well, when I connected with USB to my Laptop and the Ethernet-Link to the router. My application sends a mail message to my account when the application starts.
Thenafter I connected the USB to the router and have been supprised not getting the mail message. At the first glance Netduino seemed to work, the LEDs on board are on and the Ethernet-LED is blinking some times.
To more dive into the reason I added some code to the start of my programm to switch the Onboard LED on and off and on. This works great when USB is linked with the laptop. But it doesn't work, when I put the USB-cable to the router. The router specification says USB has 5V, 100mA. Is this too less for Netduino working? It is sufficiant to power my Smartphone.
Anyone any ideas?
