Installing LEDE on Velvet's Hotshot aka MiWiFi Mini router (part 1)
A few days ago I received an email from Velvet WiFi saying that they're shutting down for business. The email also said that the Hotshot device that was supplied could be kept. The email mentioned that the Hotshot could be turned into a regular WiFi router but didn't go into details on how to do so. This two part article will show the steps to get the Hotshot configured as a 802.11ac access point in bridged mode.

Testing the Velvet WiFi Hotshot signal strength
I received my Velvet Hotshot device last year and did an initial review of it. Around the same time I also collected some data on signal strength for the device but didn't have time to really look into it or write about it due to an extended period of travel. Now I've finally got around to looking at the results, so lets see how well the Hotshot stacks up.

Getting started with Velvet WiFi (part 1)
Velvet Wi-Fi has been in the news in Australia as well as in the UK and has been referred to as Uber for Telcos. This startup has come out of Brisbane, which is my home town so it got my interest. Even though the legality of reselling your broadband is a bit of a grey area with many Telcos explicitly prohibiting the practice, I was still keen to see how well the service works.
