Access to Redboot is required for initial installation and recovery. Access to Redboot is required for initial installation and recovery.
The bootloader can be reached via serial cable or by telnet on port 9000. Not all shipped units have Redboot telnet enabled by default, a serial cable might be required. While writing to flash router will stop answering ping and you might lose telnet connection. Leave ping running and reconnect telnet when you receive answer. Be patient as writing to flash will take several minutes. The bootloader can be reached via serial cable or by telnet on port 9000.

-==== Connecting a VLAN trunk ====+== Connecting a VLAN trunk ==
Because the FON2201/FON2202 has a build-in VLAN switch, unlike the FON2100. Connecting a VLAN trunk is a little different than usual. If you for example connect a trunk to the LAN port (eth0.1), then to access VLAN 5 on the trunk, you need the specify the device eth0.1.5 - Not eth0.5.

This practice is called double VLAN tagging. It usual requires that the MTU is lowered with 4 bytes. This is however not necessary on the FON2201/FON2202. This practice is called double VLAN tagging.

 +==== Second antenna (FON2201) ====
 +{{:media:toh:fon2201-PCB-front-highlighted.jpg}}
 +The picture above shows an annotated photo of Fonera+ (FON2201) PCB. Regarding antennas' connections it is quite similar to [[:toh:fon:fonera#fon22001|FON2200]]. The major difference being that the connections are inverted. On FON2201 antenna 1 is connected to the PCB etched antenna and antenna 2 to the stock external antenna. Therefore, in order to replace the etched antenna by an external one, you can follow the instructions for FON2200 but applying them on antenna 1 output.
