Back to La Fonera

Inside the fon router

Image:LaFonera Hardware Disassembling 01.png Before christmas foneros was giving away free routers to countries in europe. The router itself is tiny: it fits nicely in the palm of my hands (and i have small hands).

Included is a 5 v Ac/Dc converter and a simple user manual.

Anxious to see what was inside i started dissassembling. On the way i took some pictures for you all to see so read on!

As the router is small, it does not provide any additional LAN ports. One WAN port , DC input and the External RP-SMA connector with antenna can be seen in the picture below.

Below you can see the top side of the main board. It seems to have one additonal antenna soldering point.

There is a serial port connector next to the two capacitors.
