I have a la fonera with the 0.7.1 r5 firmware. I have tried two different hold-down-the reset-button procedures several times without any success whatsoever. I still cannot connect to the fonera via SSH, it simply refuses. I also tried chaning the DNS in the fonero to 184.108.40.206, reset and connect thru SSH and it didint work either.. I tried both sshenable.html and setp1.html with step2.html. Nothing works...
This is how I got it to work on the r5.
You need a separate router for this.
The problem is that r5 FONs have the DNS server setting fixed to the FON.COM DNS server which is 220.127.116.11. (Sorry, this is from memory)
So, I changed my router's LAN address to 18.104.22.168, and made sure that the router's WAN DNS server setting pointed to 22.214.171.124 which is kolofonium.
The router's DHCP server was set to serve out LAN addresses from 126.96.36.199 onwards
Connect the FON to the LAN side of the router.
Reboot FON, and let it update. When it trys to access radius01.fon.com to update, it should be forwarded to kolofonium.
