Build a wireless mesh network with some ALIX 2D2 (500 MHz AMD Geode LX800 x86 CPU, 256MB RAM, Atheros wireless card)
Aside from working like a normal wireless mesh network users should be able to read/write data from/to the ALIX Boxes and the ALIX boxes should be able to process data.
Should I try to flash dd-wrt x86, voyage linux (linux.voyage.hk) or something else?
What (open source) software should I look into before I start?
Should I use a 'server' for data storage and processing instead of the ALIX boxes? Is it even possible to use the ALIX boxes for routing AND data storage and processing?
Data can be anything, for example, I want to setup a wireless mesh using the OLSRD protocol so my whole town gets wifi and can access songs on the network. It's not for that, but that's the idea.
I'm not afraid of programing, compiling or working with *nix. This is mostly 'for fun' rather than for practicality.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
