HSMM-MESH is a project by Amateur Radio Operators where we take Linksys WRT54G wireless routers/access points, load our own customized firmware (mostly written right here in Austin), and turn the router into an Amateur Radio High-Speed-Multimedia Mesh network node.
We then attempt to link as many nodes as possible to form our own Ham Radio high speed wireless network.
We use gain antennas, amps, filters, and other creative ideas to get long paths (miles!) out of these nodes.
There are groups and users all across the country starting to setup HSMM-MESH nodes for their own use.
