Freifunk Router

Download it from the Freifunk Website (pay attention to the hardware version) and flash your Router with it. The Router reboots and is available under http://192.168.1.1 (make sure your Computer is connected to the Router with a cable). You now can configure your Freifunk Network and give the baby a name.
