La Fonera

The name of the 54 Mbps wireless router used by FON. It plugs into your broadband Internet connection, and turns it into a public wireless access point (AP), which can then be accessed by members of the FON Wi-Fi community if in that area. For this reason, FON calls the La Fonera a social router and members can personalize the page that other members see when they log on to your FON Access Point. The La Fonera router offers two secured Wi-Fi signals. One encrypted Wi-Fi signal that is only for your own private use and a second one that requires authentication and is for all other registered Foneros.
