The La Fonera is a wireless access point given away for free by FON under the condition that you connect it and allow other users to use it. It is based on OpenWRT, but is locked down to prevent tampering with its software.

The La Fonera is a locked down system: Configuration is usually not done on the real device, but instead it retrieves its setup data from the FON server. So to configure your network parameters like public and private ESSID or WPA passphrase, you log in to your FON account and change the settings on their website. During boot the boot sequence, the La Fonera then contacts the FON server and retrieves its network configuration.
:dodgy:

I'd rather spend $50 on a router that I have control over. :-/

RE: Free router
I'm not too worried about anyone stealing a wireless connection around here.  No one within a three block radius of my house even owns a computer.  In my town of 4,000, there's probaby a grand total of a dozen people who would even know how to leech it.

::EDIT::  I take it back.  There is one guy a block away who has a computer.  But I had to show him how to hook his phone line to it.  So yea...
