Fon routerBefore 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.

Disassembling the foneros router

 

Remove the mounting screws that are located under the rubber paddings:

Remove the antenna:

Pry off the white casing using a flathead driver:

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.

    Agh, I find a decent site, and they aren’t even updating it. The name of this site is fitting… give it to someone who would update it, don’t be a punk.
