    There is a good article discussing a simple AVR based ethernet device at http://tuxgraphics.org/electronics/200606/article06061.shtml

    It seems like this controller could very easily be adapted to drive a RepRap machine.  This would be an easy and relatively portable way to communicate with a RepRap machine.

    Looking at the parts list, it appears it would cost $20-$30 USD for the device.

    Just in case anyone is interested.  :)

      Long-term, yes.  I also had a mad fantasy of making all the boards in RepRap (Version 5;
      let's be realistic...) Bluetooth and just running power round the thing.  Maybe not so
      mad...
