This video shows the work of our Fon Labs in Barcelona where we are developing an open source platform that will convert la fonera into an incredibly functional tool for uploading and downloding stuff to the internet without having to keep your laptop or desktop connected to the internet. Here the demo is with a torrent. We call this the Fon Liberator because it liberates you and your laptop from the tedious activities of uploading and downloading. All you do is connect an external hard drive to the Fon Liberator router and leave and watch from wherever you are in the world how those 2 day long torrents are doing.

Not sure if this is included in the liberator plans, but would be great if any device mounted (via USB) to FON router was accessable to me (securely) over the net – that way I would always have access via FON to my home files/media that might be on my USB storage device (mem stick, ipod, HD) or i could access my home webcam if it is connected to my FON router at home to check on the house/dog/kids

This is nice, but when Linksys routers will be updated with a more stable, secure and nice firmware?

Still waiting…

It is a good news that I do not need to keep my PC on for a whole night.
