FON mp3 streaming router


I was looking for streaming solutions the other day. Little did I know that [John] would be sending in a hack for adding an mp3 decoder board to the La Fonera. The final device has both a web and command line interface which let you connect to any shoutcast/icecast streaming server. John has even gone so far as to provide the Openwrt image for the router with all of the software components you need.

    can’t get to the site, but looks like a great idea!

    Missed out on all the fon fun, had one originally before people started doing really cool hardware hacks with them. Had mine running DD-WRT through a serial cable, but then it bricked randomly one day. I’m in Canada so I cant order them for free anymore :'( anyone want to send me one?

    how difficult would this be to add an mp3 encoder for the inverse effect; to build a portable wifi mp3 streamer. could that decoder board be used to generate the mp3 stream to send source audio to an icecast/shoutcast server?

    Among the many varied applications of this… I am thinking that while I am sitting in lecture with my laptop taking notes… I might as well dictate the ambient background sound. Throw in festival or espeak for some real fun. ;)

    Looks like the owner of the site put a password on it, anyone have a mirror of this hak?
