So I've got an Orcon Genius and am wanting to share my connection with Tomizone. Does anyone know if I can use my Orcon Genius, otherwise known as the iinet BoB2 in Australia, as a Tomizone hotspot? It says that I need a certain DLink wireless router, but then I checked out and it says all I need is a 4 port wireless router and broadband connection.

Hi, I dont think that information is correct, you will need to add a suitable router that runs the Tomizone firmware to achieve this, the reference to iinet was an older Belkin that iinet also use and runs a Tomizone firmware load.

You can add a suitable D-Link DIR600 etc to your Genius to share out your connection, you will need to have this shared connection double nat'd which is not ideal but for the purposes that you intend to use it for probably not going to cause an issue, ie connect the WAN port of a Tomizone loaded DIR-600 (or other suitable router) to one of teh LAN ports of the Genius.
