Wirds.net - A Wireless Internet Redistribution System
The WIRDS.NET project seeks to provide a methodology for distributing a single internet connection across an entire building for less than $500. The project consists of a mesh network (with 8 nodes), a user access control system (captive portal), and a website with information. The project has successfully configured and deployed 8 routers, forming a single wireless network which flooded an entire building with wireless signal. The project utilizes the website at http://wirds.net to show how to build a wireless mesh network with custom firmware on WRT54G Linksys routers. The website is a collaborative wiki where users can learn and post their own experiences.
