We officially have the first version of the FON software running smoothly. The access point it works with today is the Linksys WRT54G. This model is sold in most computer stores, including FNAC and PC CIty. Why this model? Because it works with open source software and it’s great quality. If you already have this model, you’ll just have to download the FON software, connect your Linksys, install the software onto your Linksys and convert into a FON access point. All this is going to be explained in detail in the FON website. If you don’t already have a WiFi connection, we recommend you buy this model in any store or you can buy one from FON on our website. If you buy it from us, you’ll have it already configured and ready to go. Obviously, it’s not great news for some that FON only works with Linksys right now, but rest assured, in less than 4 months, FON will work with many more models. To make up for this, we’re thinking of how we can make Aliens pay Bills and Linuses without FON pocketing anything, until the price of the units bought is amortized.
