You might want to add references to OSLRD (http://www.olsr.org/) and
OSLR-PAA (http://sourceforge.net/projects/olsr-paa/) to your page. We've
succesfully set-up a mesh network (ad-hoc) with auto-IP address assignment,
and routing provided networks over the mesh (using paa) to a default
gateway (using dyn_gw module (after making it work on FreeBSD).
> Hi all,
> The wireless mesh project is now in a more usable stage and your
> support and testing is appreciated. Today I've been able to exchange
> packets between three nodes using the following network topology:
> node1 <-> node2 <-> node3. With the currently committed code it's now
> possible to send packets from node1 to node3 via node2. Other mesh
> topologies will be tested in the future.
> I've created a wiki page that's still under construction but should be
> able to help you setup your wireless mesh:
> 802.11s is interesting both to companies who want to create wide range
> wireless networks and also to home users who would like to expand
> their wireless networks. They can now start using the FreeBSD
> operating system to fullfil their needs.
> The project is still unfinished and has some rough edges, though. If
> you have any questions, dont hesitate asking.
> This project is being sponsored by The FreeBSD Foundation.
