Respawning “La Fonera”

June 22, 2007

Today i was “playing” with my Fonera, and… suddenly it freezes! … I tried to recover it, pushing the Reset button (at Bottom of the Fonera), but didn’t work 😦 . Afortunately i founded some information to recover it, but only one works.

This is the steps i followed:

  1. Switch on “La Fonera” and wait few minuts (2 aprox)
  2. Hold reset button push, until the WLAN and INTERNET leds, turn off (take some time!)
  3. Just the central LED switch on, free and hold reset button again over 10 seconds.
  4. Unplug the ethernet wire
  5. Unplug the current (AC) wire
  6. Before this, plug the current wire (Without the ethernet wire!!!)
  7. Now, you should connect to your fonera again without any problem.

This is all i did to respawn my Fonera 😀


About “La Fonera”

June 21, 2007

Hi! I received my Fonera some time ago, but i installed it yesterday. The default “La Fonera” firmware doesn’t allow you, to access to their internal Linux, and it sucks! 😉 . Don’t worry i did a simple google search to find the solution … This solution consists to install DD-WRT. What is DD-WRT?, You should maybe read this website []. Basically its a free firmware which bring the chance of use software like Aircrack, use our Fonera like an wireless repeater, and more funny functions.

When i’ve played more with my Fonera i’ll comment here! See u 😉
