Porting FON to VxWorks is not very easy since each router running VxWorks has a particular software architecture, contrarily to Linux systems. The point of adding the FON service to existing or new equipments is that there is a demand for such a feature.

#6 Such a software would be really nice not least, because the Wi-Fi assistant of Microsoft Windows is not good.

#7 This is something important since if there is no use of the network, nobody will help maintaining the network. Phones, Cameras, game consoles need to be able to authenticate on the FON network.

How to realize? All Gadget had to be registered with their MAC adresses in a database – and directed to a Fonero.
When logging in, the fon router-firmware must detect, that this is not a browser, has to ask the FON:Gadget:database and accept or reject the gadget. so no manual action should be possible. isn´t it?

Martín, I think you will find this article interesting. Talks about Wigle, a massive user contibuted WIFI database, and the hack to convert all the point into KML files so they show up in Google Earth:

No FON spots in Wigle as far as I can tell, by the way, but you can probably pass on to their system all of them, I guess.

Oh, I also want a Nokia N80 !!!!! 😀
