I was thinking a little Raspberry Pi logo on the back, is there anywhere we can buy stickers?WildWalker wrote:That looks really nice, just needs a big Raspberry Pi logo on the top )
I got mine on eBay. Since then there has been a few more, one even went for £5!chickey wrote:I love that, would look perfectly at home in a TV cabinet, i guess the only problem is getting hold of a suitable broken airport.
IR is definitely a possibility. I have an IR receiver which I will try and hook up via GPIO and place where the LED currently is. I'm not sure if it will work as there is some frosted plastic in the way, but only one way to find out!boxgrove wrote:Great build, thinking of doing this myself but adding an infrared sensor and integrated usb hub, if only I could solder haha! If i sent you the parts how much would you charge for labour haha!
Thanks.Vuster31 wrote:Great Project man!
Well detailed with the descriptions and pictures.
I was trying to get an airport on ebay a few weeks ago but the going price was just too high.
you beat me to this, but i dont think mine wouldve compared to yours.
Great job again.
If I sent you these, how much would you charge to solder on the ethernet, usb port and the power to the GPIO. (I don't have a USB header yet)nadnerb wrote: IR is definitely a possibility.

You'll have to modify the case to fit the extra USB ports. I suppose you may be able to squeeze 2 ports into an ethernet port.
I'd make you one if you sent me the parts plus labour - although my case took me about 10-15 hours to make :p
Yeah thats what Im basically doing at the moment, a HDMI extension in the back with usb extensions leads sticking out. It's rudimentary but it works for the time being! Running with a wireless dongle at the moment so I dont need ethernet for time being. Maybe once I've perfected my soldering skills!nadnerb wrote:hmm... im not sure to be honest.
An alternative would be to buy short extension cables and mount those in the case. This wouldn't be as nice a finish, but would be a lot easier to do as there would be no soldering required.
I'm interested in how your case is coming along, can you post pics of what you have done so far
I used the white cable/jack from the original Apple power supply then spliced it onto the black power supply.TBoyH_RPi wrote:did you use the apple plug or the black plug?
Oh, ok I didn't know what voltage the airport uses.nadnerb wrote:I used the white cable/jack from the original Apple power supply then spliced it onto the black power supply.
The Apple power supply was 12v so I couldn't use it.
Have nearly all the bits I need for the build.by nadnerb
MrSolocka, You should be able to get a 2.5" HDD in a Mac Mini easily, they are taller than a Airport Extreme.
