Kortex Xtend Lite is intended for those interested in developing fast/easy solutions for IoT applications, WiFi extenders, ethical hacking, network security, packet sniffing, WiFi speed tests, and so on.
Guests at home: Your friends are visiting you at home? No problem, just setup your Kortex Xtend Lite as a free open WiFi access point and let your friends connect without them knowing your WiFi password.
Protect your connected devices: The advantage of using this NAT repeater is the IP masquerading feature that protects your devices (computer, IoT sensors, etc...) identity by implementing a network address translation procedure that gives your devices a unique private IP address hidden behind a single public IP address (repeater IP address), so you can keep a bunch of devices hidden from hackers.
Capture data from connected clients: In order of being able to capture connected clients data, firstly you must set the repeater as an open WiFi access point (see *commands list, documentation and tutorials - up)
Once you make sure someone is connected to your Kortex Xtend Lite (by running "show" command) from your console or Telnet terminal start a monitor service by running "monitor on [portno]"
This service mirrors the traffic of the internal network in PCAP format into a TCP stream. With a "netcat [external_ip_of_the_repeater] [portno] | sudo wireshark -k -S -i -" from a computer in the external network you can now observe the traffic in the internal network in real time. Use this to observe with which internet sites your clients are communicating.

"Xtend Lite" was chosen to mark the series of WiFi IoT repeater devices. To mark new releases of Kortex Xtend Lite boards I use semver versioning which is formed by three digits: (n.n.n | “n tends for a number between 0 and infinite”). For new hardware releases, the first number would be modified, for major firmware releases the second number would be changed, and for minimal hardware & firmware releases, the third number would be changed.
Version 0.0.0 was reserved for prototypes, then it came version 0.8.0 and 0.9.0 which were the first fully tested prototype versions, after it, version 1.0.0 was released. By purchasing a Kortex Xtend Lite V1.0.0 you agree that you understand that it still requires some improvements in firmware and electronics.
