I for whatever reason can't get it talking to my Mac so I can't access
the internal network. Filed a support ticket and was told to use WPA2
but to no avail. Also tried both the password set through fon.com and
the serial number. Any suggestions welcome.
Good idea well executed but pity about the rumoured reception issues.
I do wonder as well whether this sort of thing would be possible through
an 'open' network of eg radius servers...
