Fonera 2.0 features usb port, print/file server, plugin API

Details on a beta version of an updated Fonera Wi-Fi sharing router were recently posted on the FON company blog.

The unit is already available for purchase in some countries.

Why they don’t properly advertise these on the main site is beyond me. I normally never use anything except net installer cds when I work with Debian.
