Freifunk Mesh:


the current version

Freifunk Firmware (English - wiki.freifunk.net)

Freifunk Presentation English

Linksys WRT54Gs work nicely, spaced <= .2 miles apart

just plug internet into a router WAN port. if you plug in more than one, clients connect to the closest one. if you have more than one internet source and one fails the mesh just routes people to another

Default likewise, Alan,

Google search DD-WRT firmware and check out thier site and forums. It is a virtual treasre trove of wirless networking in general and all of the many ways a DD-WRT Linksys wireless router can be used.
