I was just wondering why the Wifi extension is so expensive (~$90)? Is it a license issue? I saw somewhere (as of 2009) it was going to be $16 a unit (in batches of 10,000) - obviously GHI wouldn’t be buying in these quantities, and has costs on top of just buying the chip, but its there any way to get this price down?
More curious than anything, it’s the main stumbling block for me financially as board + $90 for Wifi adds up pretty quickly when you want to make 5 or 10 prototypes of something - $900 for wifi chips just hurts. And I cant use Ethernet cables =)
