I recieved my Fon wireless router a day or two ago and I’ve been having a few problems with it. I can’t get its connection to the internet stable. When I plug it into the Eathernet coming from my cable modem the lights on it flicker on and off but the only one that stays on is the Power indicator. It takes about 5 minutes before the public SSID becomes visible and then I log on so that I can register the router and for one thing it takes forever to connect to the wifi.fon.com site, but then I login and it never finishes loging in it just loads until my browser finally gives up. When I try to log in with the WPA key that they gave me to the private SSID it tells me the password is wrong.
I just don’t know what to do at this point, what I wanted to do is use this router as the open wireless access point for travelers looking to check their email who happen to drive by my house and my other router as my access to the internet but I just can’t get the Fon router working right. Maybe I’m just doing something weird and its not working because of that, I just don’t know at this point.
If I ever get it working I’ll let you readers know about it and let you know what I did to get it working.
