 +====== DEPRECATED - Tutorial: How to install Aircrack-ng on La Fonera ======
 +February 12, 2007 \\
 +By: SonicvanaJr
 +
 +===== Introduction =====
 +
 To start off the Fon, or La Fonera router is a small wireless router that is sold to the customer at a relatively low price ($30) **provided** that the user agrees to connect the Fonera to their internet connection, and provide free internet to those who want it. To start off the Fon, or La Fonera router is a small wireless router that is sold to the customer at a relatively low price ($30) **provided** that the user agrees to connect the Fonera to their internet connection, and provide free internet to those who want it.

 +The Fon company seems to live to give their routers away for free sometimes.
 +
 +I have personally seen, and taken advantage of three different instances where they have given away routers.
 +So if you're broke, or cheap. Just wait around for their next "have a router on us" event :)

 +The Fon is able to run the [[http://​openwrt.org|OpenWRT]] Kamikaze image, and can thus run various pieces of software that are ported to it. Including the Aircrack-ng suite. 
 + 
 +== Power Adapter(s) == 
 + 
 +Over the past month of so I have fabricated various power supplies for the fon, since a power outlet is not always available.  
 + 
 +Since it runs on five volts the options to power it are almost limitless.  
 + 
 +So far I have build a car power adapter, USB power adapter, and a power adapter that uses two 9V batteries. 
 + 
 +The car, and 9V battery adapters both used a 5V voltage regulator available from Radioshack. Part number 276-1770 
 + 
 +Basically this takes an input voltage up to 35V, and drops it down to 5V. However since the laws of science apply in our world the lost energy has to go somewhere, and that somewhere is out of the regulator in the form of heat, so in layman'​s terms these get VERY hot after a bit of use. 
 + 
 +For the USB adapter it was as simple as connecting ground to ground and positive to 5V+ on the USB cable. 
 + 
 +I'm not going to go into wiring specifics since all of it is VERY basic stuff, however if you need help feel free to contact me.

-Before building the image however the Madwifi-Ng drivers must be patched to allow injection. 
-The patch for the Madwifi-Ng driver can be found [[http://​patches.aircrack-ng.org/​madwifi-ng-r1886.patch|here]] 
-Please make note that there are actually only two **code** changes made to the if_ath.c file, rest is just comments, and can and **will** be omitted when patching for OpenWRT. 
  
-To make your own injection capable image of the OpenWRT Kamikaze image follow the steps below 
-However, if you're lazy, and don't think you can accomplish this, or just don't feel like you can do this you can download the image files [[http://​sonicvanajr.com/​fonera/​images/​|at this site ]]

-      * Open said file in your favorite text editor and at the beginning you will see a bunch of commented code. Remove one line of this code.

-      * Now apply the two lines of code found within the patch file mentioned at the beginning of tutorial. Again I know it sucks to do it by hand, but then again it is quite trivial, and easy, so don't complain to much. Once this is done save the file, and exit out of your text editor. +

 +=== Disclaimer ===
 +== You can potentially break your Fon router, though there are various ways to fix it, if you mess up flashing your basically SOL until someone figures out, and documents how to connect a JTAG cable to the Fon and read and write to it. That being said, if you break your router it is your own fault and no one else'​s. Know what your doing before you attempt this ==
  
 Now you need to flash your Fon with the OpenWRT image. There are two ways to do this currently, one is to use the serial interface on the Fon, and the Redboot boot loader to flash a image, or you can ssh into the Fon and flash via the OpenWRT shell. Now you need to flash your Fon with the OpenWRT image.
