Here you can download the FON Spot Software for Mac and Linux developed by our FON Labs. With this software you can share Fon Wifi directly from your computer.
This software is still a Beta so, please, if you find any bug or improvements, tell us on this post’s comments.
Fonspots can’t be registered as routers. Thus, you don’t earn roaming privileges. Fonspots are just an easy way to share your connection with other foneros around you.
To start the Fonspot you have to be connected to Internet through ethernet or 3G, never via Wifi because you’ll share your connection using that interface.
- MAC VERSION REQUIREMENTS
The only requirement for Mac users is having an Intel processor.
- LINUX VERSION REQUIREMENTS
We have verified that Ubuntu comes with all the required files to run the hotspot. If you want to try other distributions it’s important to check next software is installed:
- Linux* Universal TUN/TAP driver (tun.o)
- Runtime Tcl/tk
Once checked, download the next file and run this command as root: tar zxvf fon_linuxspot_beta0.2_en.tar.gz -C /
When it’s installed, run the command fonspot to make it work.
