FON - the largest wifi community (la fonera)

I set up my 5euro (atucally 17.40 including TNT shipping) FON router jobby this evening. The good points are that itis a nice small discreet unit. It runs a bit warm but not as hot as previous linksys units I had. It is sort of straight-forward to setup but I have issues connecting to the "private" ssid - this is the one that is available to only me (or people I give the WEP/WPA/WPA2 key to [you can setup your choice of encryption]). This seems to be a known bug and hopefully a firmware upgrade may turn up. Its a good idea - to be able to share out a self-chosen portion of bandwidth to other people and to be able to access the web for free from other locations. I look forward to seeing how it works out - I added myself tothe rather sparse Cork map anyway. FON The Irish Rep
