Access Webcam Stream from the Internet

Since firmware you can watch the stream of a webcam connected to the Fonera from the internet. It’s not that difficult to set:

1. Install the Webcam Plugin, and plug your webcam.
2. Enable WebGUI access from WAN in Settings >> Firewall >> Application.
3. Redirect the https port (443) to the WAN IP of your Fonera within your broadband router interface.

Check out this page of FON Wiki for more detailed instructions.

    As soon an you fix the bug that keeps me from using a Hub between my (supported) 3G dongle I might trie, just as all the other whistles and bells that we mobile users can’t use…… (we have no harddisk, you see)…

    and my wife asks when she wil have a router that does not require logging in to the wireless network every 5 minutes (Ubuntu netbook remix)
    (funny enough my windows 7 on the same type of netbook doesn’t suffer this inconvenience).

    What have you changed anyway in the “new” firmware?

    Developing firm/softwar for a single platform/single hardware gizmo is every developer’s wet dream.
    Nothing inexpected, nothing can possibly go wrong.
    Yet you did succeed to turn it o a nightmare!
    you are geinious (and I’ll just buy another router)

    Please give us a feedback regarding the firmware for the fonera g. Many people stood next to you when you were looking to expand. The 2g roadmap was very short since afte a very short time you developed fonera n and asked us to participate on this new project by giving extra money to upgrade. do you feel it is fair? at least you could inform us that a new product was coming very soon.
    sincerely yours

    A HueHD camera doesn’t give a stream under fonera 2.0n (in the list, is indicated yes!). It seems that there is a issue about plugin given by Fonera.

  12. Josemi Says:

    Ticket creation has been closed!! Why?

    And…For when can we expect a new firmware for Fonera2.0g? It seems that you have stoped working, no more blog post, no svn updates…..


  13. Stephane Says:

    The plugin from fon deosn’t work with my camera (huehd) but the Motion4fon extra plugin works fine!

  14. burton Says:

    yeah fon is signing a fussion with mercadona ;)

  15. Jos Meijer Says:

    So is the link to forums from
    Apperantly, FON people don’t want to be interupted by dissatisfied customers while inventing more toys for themselfs.

  16. Matthijs Says:

    Josemi, ticket creation has not been closed! On the contrary, I’ve recently enabled commenting on tickets again, as well as email notification to keep people updated.

    It did take a while to get the configuration right, so you might have tried at an unfortunate time when I had screwed up the configuration in some way. It should be working again now anyway! :-)

    As for 2.0g support, we’re looking into making a new release in the near future.

    guess FON sucks big time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. HumbleDestroyer Says:

    Hey guys, at lest they are giving updates. They said they would work on it. I’m not happy with the amount of time it’s taking either, but all of this isn’t going to make it go any faster.

    Really, if your disappointed, be disappointed. Stop attacking the one guy that at is working on it, and I’m sure is very short handed right now. Show him some support, and post on the owner’s blog about your displeasure.
