La Fonera Hardware Specifications

La Fonera Hardware Specifications

Latest DD-WRT Version

Last DD-WRT build for La Fonera is 2006 - 0128. You can download here: Download Section

Flashing DD-WRT on La Fonera

Flashing a stock La Fonera

Follow the guide about La Fonera Flashing

Upgrading from older DD-WRT build

(this is for versions older than 2006 - 0117, later versions support flashing through the web interface)

Either follow the standard flash routine for flashing via Redboot, or use SSH, telnet or serial console to the Fonera and issue the commands below. (This might also work if you do it under the Commands section on the webinterface)

cd /tmp
wget <newest version of root.fs>
wget <newest version of vmlinux.bin.l7>
mtd write vmlinux.bin.l7 vmlinux.bin.l7
mtd write root.fs rootfs

Building DD-WRT for the La Fonera from Source

Downloading the sources via SVN

svn co svn:// DD-WRT will download the complete source-files in a directory called DD-WRT.

Please note that this is a very large download, so be prepared that it might take a while.


the makefile you need for this task is src/router/Makefile.ar531x which simply can be called by make -f Makefile.ar531x all the sources should be within the svn, but i was not able yet to check if everything is compileable. if a third party is able to test this i will give him advices if he has troubles. (the last time this worked good together with "Tornado")


ToDo List for the Fonera DD-WRT Firmware

(feel free to add some items)


  • Fix WDS not working in WDS AP mode (also no SSID)
  • pppoe (message that it is no mips binary) - BS: done
  • Restore the firmware-configuration data (backup works) - BS: in progress
  • Fix Lan/Wan interface, when connected wired Fonera is inaccessible - BS: just disable internet connection setup and lan will be assigned to the bridge
  • Fix Lan/Wan Wlan bridge, "assigning WAN Port to Switch" not working - BS: this option must be removed, see above
  • Fix creation and erasing of Virtual Interfaces - BS: fixed (will be released soon)
  • Fix Webif bug when change gateway setting - BS: more details please
  • Fix wireless security, mac addresses for filtering turn into zeros in table - BS: fixed
  • Activate encryption for Virtual Interfaces - BS: always worked, see security page tab
  • Virtual interface if deleted from webconfig is NOT taken down and removed - BS: fixed (will be released soon)


Fixed in [2006 - 0116] :

  • WPA-PSK and TKIP (didn`t work with Windows XP)
  • Backup the firmware-configuration data

Fixed in [2006 - 0117] :

  • WDS Repeating
  • Reset button
  • Web flashing & upgrading (from this version to future)


  • Can someone compile a version with DD-WRTs VoIP support SIP Express Router SER?
  • jffs2 on La Fonera (might not be worthwile since total flash memory is only 4 MB [Exception: SD/MMC Modded Foneras])
  • X-Link Kai
  • Sniffer (as Kismet) or Scanner (as Wi-viz) on Fonera Client Mode Kismet HTML Client Beta or Wi-viz Wiki Page
  • Original or compatible client Fon to update active Fonera on maps Fon Maps
  • Enable SIP Express Router or support (OpenWrt edition), so each Fonera can switch SIP phone calls.
  • Enable the creation of FAKE Virtual Interfaces to confuse lamer near house ;)
  • Packages-Tab in the Web-Interface
  • FTP/SMB(/HTTP)-Tab in the Web-Interface
  • Enable WLAN LED work (maybe using FON's source code)
  • Wireless Bridge mode (wired PC in the same subnet). Or someone to fill the "howto".


(Please put all your HowTo's here!)
