    Hi can I have some advice as to whether this will work in the U.K. My property is a lodge on a holiday site and there is a large group of us (60-100 lodges) that need as close to broadband as possible. Unfortunately the owner of the site refuses to allow landlines on site and mobile phone
  • Room to room to garden shed wifi?? December 9, 2016

    Hi Anish The wifi algorithm dynamically sets the Modulation Coding Scheme (MCS) mode which is often displayed with (or as) a theoretical bit rate for the type of modulation/coding that is being used. I assume that this is what you are referring to. There is a good explanation here:

  • How it works the telephone network? November 4, 2016
    Hi, I became interested in your project. A great one! Congrats! Specially, due to your collaboration with librerouter (and libremesh firmware). I read that this works with batman-advance with the network; ok, batman-advance works out of the box with routing, internet access, services, etc.
