    so i got a fon router several months ago and didn't really do much with it. i'm thinking about putting dd-wrt onto it, it seems pretty involved though. this might take some time

    free is free. try it out. I cant imagine it being very useful, but give it a try if you're bored.


    the only time I've ever heard "FON" before was back when that was Sprint's ticker symbol, lolz

    Im about to flash my buffalo router because with the stock firmware it it always dropping signal

    I also have the free fon router, but I think Ill leave it alone just because of the concept of fon

    hah, I did my buffalo tonight too

    I hope it works better than it did with stock fw, but from things Ive read it may end up not helping
