If you have tried our Beta2, you are already familiar with our Dashboard and know the features that the La Fonera 2.0 will ship with its final firmware. But well, let’s list them anyway:
FON Feature: Private WiFi signal for your own use and Public one for Foneros (CoovaChilli). Join the world’s largest WiFi network, connect for free on all FON Spots worldwide and make money from the passes you sell.
WiFi Signal Repeater: Rather than connecting your La Fonera 2.0 to the internet using a network cable, connect to an existing wireless signal! The La Fonera 2.0 will still be broadcasting your Private and Public SSID.
3G UMTS Connexion: Plug your USB HSDPA modem to La Fonera 2.0 and it will instantaneously spread it’s internet access in the form of WiFi!
Router Features: Feeds internet in a secure way (WPA2) to as many computers as you want through WiFi and to a computer plugged into the La Fonera 2.0 LAN port. Distribute IPs by DHCP, Forward ports, etc.
Storage Sharing: Plug a USB storage device (pen-drive, hard drive, card reader, etc) and browse content from any computer in your home network (samba), from La Fonera 2.0 Dashbord (LuCI) or FTP
Printer Sharing: Plug your USB printer and use it from any computer in your home network. MAC OS, Linux or Windows, it works with any operating system.
Webcam Sharing: Plug a webcam and stream its video flux from any computer in your network or save regular snapshots to your attached pen-drive.
Plug-In Support: Install new apps from La Fonera 2.0 Dashboard in just one click. Third party developers, as well as FON ones, will be able to add new features to the La Fonera 2.0
That will be the base of the La Fonera 2.0 firmware – it might change slightly from now to the final release. We are already working on these Plug Ins:
- Youtube Uploader
- Azureus BitTorrent client
- OLPC Feature
- Music Streaming (based on pm2036′s work)
- Bluetooth (with the help of rwhitby)
More will come later on. If you have other ideas and want to implement them, feel free to join us, we can help you!
