I am trying to control power to turn it on and off with the stamp module. But i need to figure out how to hook up 120 volts to my stamp module board and what circuits I should use.
Anybody give me some ideas of where to start.

Also I was looking for wireless newworking such as 802.11a,b,c,g does not matter the band. I just want a product that I can optain an ipaddress. Any ideas here?

EBAY: 4-CH TTL Driv Relay PCB for Xmas decor, Basic Stamp PIC

This is a relay board that is very simple to use with the basic stamp.

As the ad says perfect for, “driving heavy inductive loads such as AC motors, magnetic lock etc.” Relays contact spec - 250V, 10Amp (Not bad for around $10) TTL logic control input is perfect for the basic stamp and very easy to use.
