 A new Linux distribution for the Linksys WRT54G

ewrt is a linux distribution for the Linksys WRT54G wireless router. It was forked from the Sveasoft Samadhi2 distribution by Irving Popovetsky and Brandon Psmythe of Portless Networks, a wireless networking company in Portland, OR.
See the slides from the presentation at the PersonalTelco monthly meeting The goal of the project is to maintain a stable and secure platform for use in enterprise and wireless ISP environments while providing key features to compete with commercial-grade wireless solutions like Cisco and Proxim.

However, the telco said it wouldn't "go it alone" and insisted that such investment would have to be shared.
He said that BT plans to invest around £22 million by 2005 in setting up a total of 35 public private partnerships across the UK to bring broadband to areas where exchanges have not been enabled.

 Not-for-profit Broadband for rural Northamptonshire

The technology employed uses a wireless network with the signal hopping from building to building. This uses either small roof or loft space antenna and less than one seventeenth the power of a mobile phone.

 UN urges wi-fi for all

Di-wifr"It is precisely in places where no infrastructure exists that wi-fi can be particularly effective," said Mr Annan, "helping countries to leapfrog generations of telecommunications technology and infrastructure and empower their people."

Mr Annan said - "governments, telecommunication regulators, technology firms and enthusiasts should work together to ensure that nothing stands in the way of broader wireless network use."
For us this means - The assembly, The county council, Gwynedd economic Partnership, B.T., and presumably enthusiasts such as us!....I'm game, anyone else?

 The low-cost Locusts' Swarm

Di-wifrAnonymous writes "Based on open source and able to work as a router, gateway and repeater, LocustWorld'sinnovative MeshBox may provide an open access point for community networks and ultimately shake up the Wi-Fi world.

Originally released as a bootable CD-ROM, the MeshBox system fits on a 32MB CompactFlash memory card and is designed to provide the capabilities of a set-top Internet appliance and wireless mesh router.

MeshBox also works as a thin client workstation that's equipped with a Web browser; instant message client; remote desktop and windows terminal server client; and MPEG video and MP3 audio player; and offers peer-to-peer file sharing capabilities and network support.

It's available as a system, or as downloadable software, which, in theory, should let users easily distribute it. And with omni or directional antennas and a broadband Internet connection, it has the potential to cover any area with Wi-Fi access."

 Wifi world distance record

Di-wifrWireless broadband connectivity achieved over 310km using equipment from Alvarion
The Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) announced today that they have transmitted information via a broadband wireless link over a distance of 310km. They believe that this is the longest distance achieved using wireless connectivity.
The link was made between a stratospheric balloon that was launched from Esrange near the town of Kiruna in northern Sweden and a base station located near Esrange.
Onboard the balloon was an antenna supplied by Alvarion, the world’s most successful provider of broadband wireless products. The antenna was connected to a high-power amplifier with 6 watts power output, a camera and a server. Data, such as environmental conditions and weather patterns, was collected and the information was sent back to Esrange via an Alvarion base station which measured 2.4 meters with 6 watt power output and automatic tracking of the antenna using GPS technology.
Information received at the base station was then sent back to Esrange via the internal network. The information between the balloon and the base station was transmitted over the 2.4GHz spectrum (2480 Mhz which the SSC is allowed to use with higher ERP) with a stable signal strength of -68 dBm.
The round trip ping response at 300Km was 300-500 mSec.
The weather balloon reached a maxium height of 29.7 km and drifted steadily. It finally touched down east of Sodankylä in the northern part of Finland, having travelled approximately 315 Km.
