Over the past months, various articles have appeared on the hub with a description of Wi-Fi Mesh networks, which were built on cjdns software.
Obviously, in order to build a network (or at least try to do it) it is necessary for those who wish to be next to each other, but because of mesh networks, I think few people will want to change their place of residence.
Thus, a service appeared that I would like to talk about; it will help those who wish to organize and build a Mesh network.
About the service And so, when the first posts about cjdns networks appeared, many people wanted to take part in the project, but due to the fact that those who wish are in different cities, and sometimes countries, it is very difficult to interact between them.
So the service was born: Mesh network card in Russia and the CIS
The main idea of the service is that those who want to take part in the project can mark their location where they can deploy a router for the Mesh network, and when the same people appear nearby, we will notify both of them and help set up the network using the service tools.
What it can— Register through a project forum or a social network — The ability to permanently delete created points — Shows your forum login and your comment that you yourself leave What do we want? Build a Mesh network in Russia and CIS countries. Yes, we understand that there will be no Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi network from Vladivostok to Moscow – ordinary Internet communication channels will be used there.
But to build islands that are free to function, giving the joy of creating something new and utilizing the unlimited tariffs that are now available to almost everyone, we can do.
Who are “We”? We are people who care about the fate of the Internet in Russia and Mesh networks in particular, we are active users of the cjdroute.net forum, so that everyone can be with us =) FAQ What standard will be used? – Wi -Fi 2, 4 GHz g / n; Why not 5 GHz? – Not completely legal in the territory of the Russian Federation, worse coverage What routers do you plan to use? – While there is no exact plan, you can go to our forum and discuss your views on this issue, by collective discussion while we think in the direction of TP-LINK, Nanostation. Any router can work with this oh network? – Completely – no, but everyone can add network support only for himself to his router How will the problem of a huge number of hopes be solved if there are a large number of participants? – Routers will also be connected via the Internet, cjdns protocol implies automatic route selection if wi-fi to wi-fi network will be overloaded or the number of hopes will not be optimal – the usual Internet will be used to transport traffic. How is it with the prohibited content? – We are against it, but the decision to place the resource is still n it’s the owner =) If I install cjdns in my home, will it make me an Internet access point with all the consequences? – No, why all this? The current Internet is not comfortable compared to what it was in early 2000, but it has become faster, more beautiful , smarter, but he lost his soul charm and comfort.
And so, everyone who wants to participate in the project, please go here and mark yourself on the map.
