Did you build a prototype remote solar vpn server of $150USD spare parts in garage at home?

For fun & profit, I will like to design a cheap "droppable" VPN server that will be placed a mile or so away from a a known wifi hotspot, where the portable device would serve as a portable vpn server on the internet.
My prototype budget is about $150 US Dollars.
I do not see this has been done before, so here my idea for your review. Your experience & knowledge would be highly appreciated. I'm thinking of selling these when I can make them more cheap. I have not built it yet so I only are in the start of prototype idea stages.
PROTOTYPE: 1. RADIO. 2. COMPUTER. 3. POWER.
RADIO: a. Any small 12VDC wifi radio & router should work. b. Maybe the Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco M2 perhaps? c. Prototype cost is near $50 US Dollars.
COMPUTER: a. Any cheap computer board with Ethernet & USB should work. b. Maybe the Raspberry Pi Model B should work? c. Prototype cost is near $35 US Dollars.
POWER: a. Need only charges & supplies 12 volts should work. b. Maybe this Amazon 6W solar panel should work? (Amazon.com product link shortened) c. Maybe a 12VCD gel battery should also work. d. Prototype cost is near $40 US Dollars for the solar panel. e. Prototype cost is near $15 US Dollars for the 12VCD battery.
I have not built this yet, before I go in wrong directions, I would enjoy to ask if you have better ideas for parts to improve specifications or to keep the prototype costs down.
Your helping ideas are much welcome ahead of time!

So you can freeload off the wifi? What a asshole.

Only a real pig would choose Hillary over either one of them. Since you've admitted that you are a pig, it makes sense.

It's clear you wouldn't know. You don't swing that way anyway.

A distinction without a difference.

Very good! I offer Malformed as exhibit #2. He even said he likes the taste of his ass ("it tastes like pork").

The goal is to have a vpn server on net. The wifi must be able to connect so it is not free loading. We are not talking break encryption. User must have connect password to access point.

What is the radio part for? If that part depends on an existing WIFI signal to work, then computer part can do already.
