Amatuer Radio Mesh Network

Stumbled into the Anne Arundel Radio Club today literally where six men of various backgrounds and sizes were tinkering. Mesh Network adapted from work in 2010 when Linksys had to open their source code to third parties. Remember that news? Product makers were sure that was the end of substantive technology as we knew it. Meanwhile, this Linksys router which appeared everywhere at the time in 2002 and 2004 was still everywhere in people’s homes serving up wifi.


The open source code allowed some changes which Linksys and others came to adopt and embrace. In particular, only certain versions allowed the Mesh Network.

Linksys WRT54G 2.0, 2.2, 3.0
Linksys WRT54G 1.0
Linksys WRT54G 1.1
Linksys WRT54G 3.1
Linksys WRT54G 4.0
Linksys WRT54G-TM 1.0
Linksys WRT54G3GV2 1.0
Linksys WRT54GL 1.0, 1.1
Linksys WRT54GS 1.0, 1.1, 2.0
Linksys WRT54GS 3.0

The silver sticker on the back has the version number in “tiny” and the devices are worth keeping or trading in to your local radio club. The Mesh Network created (first in Austin, Texas, they say) is a LOS emergency fallback measure. A little prepper, but why not one more last line of communication?
