Yeah, the Fon routers look good - especially since they are cheaper (US$40
vs Meraki's US$50). But they have the following problems:
I don't think there is a weatherproof version. Where did you hear that they
They don't support Power-Over-Ethernet at all.
They don't ship to Australia yet.
You need to register as a FON member to buy the unit.
I think for the extra US$10 I'd rather get a Meraki with PoE support.
