The goal is to create a large wireless mesh network in Tucson for decentralized communications.

Action Plan

  1. Acquire Hardware - See list below.
  2. Install DD-WRT on routers and configure them to use OLSR as described here.
  3. Distribute those routers to people to reach where/who we'd like it to reach.
  4. Offer free DD-WRT installation and OLSR configuration to people who already own compatible routers.


Progress

As of 6/25/2011:

  • So far we have two routers with DD-WRT installed and meshing.
  • Acquired awesome wireless satellite dish.
  • Plotting spots where we'd like the signal to reach.
