RED: Uplink via WiFi
RED rocks. It's simple and it works. I would like to see an option where the uplink would not have to be a hard cable to an Internet connection. Make it an option where the WAN link could be WiFi

I was just thinking the same thing, but it would need to be able to be configured through a web interface that lets you authenticate on public wifis that require a login or acceptance of terms to allow internet traffic. This would be a great roaming device for people who travel and can only get wifi at hotels. It would create a secure connection from anywhere in the world.

An easier way is to use a device like a Ubiquiti Bullet and configure it as a client. There are many other wireless routers that can be configured as a client for this purpose. Many will bridge the connection so that you appear on the wireless network as just another wireless device.
Agreed. I understand it is technically tricky, given all the complexities of WiFi Security/etc., but maybe a USB dongle that you could use with your laptop to configure the settings and then move over to the RED.

There is already an option to do 3G via a USB dongle - just make it so we can use a USB wifi dongle and we'll be good to go!
