    Brought 2 of these earlier in the year as was going to give 1 to my daughter and I use one. Daughter didn't need it so never used it. It was purchased from Here

    It comes with a uk plug, you plug this into your existing internet connection at home and then register it online using the code in the box. You will then use this when connecting to any BT FON hotspot, more info on how it works can be found Here

    I can confirm this has worked for us when travelling around France and when connecting to hotspots in the UK.

    £25 including delivery.

    lowered price to make it more appealing given new euro rate. :) site has them for 44 euros inc del to UK around £33-£34 using current rate.

    does the warranty go from when you buy it or from when you activate it?

    Just looked for the receipt but cant find it (it was a while ago), i would have to say no warranty to be on the safe side but to be fair there is not a lot that can go wrong. I plugged mine in when i got it and registered online and not touched it since. It just sits in the corner in my office doing not a lot. I can see the hotspot if i search for it so i know it is working.

    The Fonera has a 2 year warranty which begins at the time you receive your unit.
    Recommend someone and they get 10% off brings it down to £29.70 with 2 yrs warranty. I am looking at maybe buying another for a xmas present but wouldn't want to risk the 2 yrs warranty to save less than a fiver.

    Will wait and see when mine arrives.

    Must have over a year then but if they want receipt to prove it then thats a different story. I must have it but not found it from where i have currently looked.

    I have also found the receipt and if it does have a 2 year warranty from initial purchase then it still has 13 months left to go. It was brought 5th Dec 2014 (longer than i thought as i was sure it was this year but it is still in warranty).
