We've revised the board by adding some LED indicators and also improving the overall performance of the board. This is a breakout board for the RN-131C WiFly GSX module, an ultra-low power 802.11b/g transceiver. This board breaks out all pins of the RN-131C to two 17-pin 0.1" pitch headers. Board comes fully assembled and tested as pictured.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Once you navigate the difficulty getting this board working, it is stable and works well. The issue is for non-expert makers like myself that need good tutorials and examples to get comfortable with the board. Unfortunately, Sparkfun's "tutorial" is for a different board, the shield version and doesn't have any info about pinouts. Additionally, none of the Arduino libraries for this board actually work.
If you are a highly experienced programmer then you will enjoy this board's features and stability. but if you just want to get something that works without a lot of effort, I would recommend another wifi board with more support and tutorials.
