Fon

A couple weeks ago I saw a blurb somewhere about getting a new wireless router for $5. This caught my eye because we've been using an old 11Mbps jobby from Netgear (which has been incredibly solid, mind you). The catch? You have to leave your router open to other 'Foneros' for a year. Not a big deal to me since I didn't have anything locked down w/ the Netgear.

So, I ordered my Fon 'social router' for $5 + $8 shipping and hoped for the best.

Today, a Linksys WRT54GS showed up on my doorstep w/ Fon's firmware, muddy instructions, and window sticker that's really too small to see from the street. Not bad for $5.

After a few minutes of tiddling around, our new 54Mbps wireless network was up and ready for all in range... Well, all but my new DS lite. :(

Apparently, since the Fon software requires being able to submit a username/password combo from a webpage, the DS lite won't be able to connect anymore. It's not really a show-stopper; just an inconvenience. No more getting worked in Mario Kart DS online.

At least until they fix it. (hint hint)

Raise! Bonus! DS Lite!

Good things are happening at work this week ... I hit Target w/ Joey and picked up a DS Lite (it's gorgeous!), Brain Age, and Mario Kart DS (a blast!).

Why am I sitting here typing out a blog post when I could be playing w/ the new toy? Martha's playing Brain Age. ;)
