To those of you who actively follow the recent discussions it may come to no
big surprise that it was decided to remove the vis functionality from the
batman-adv kernel module in a not so distant future (with the next
We were expecting to have already put out a solid SECN 2.0 beta release but
have run into some interesting issues in compatibility between Mesh
Potatoes running the madwifi driver and and TP-Link devices running ath5k
As you may know, ath5k doesn't support ahdemo mode which hides the IBSS
Has anyone used the Raspberry Pi as a villagetelco server? I'm thinking
the server would have an optimize version of asterisk, nginx as the http
server, and so on. Please share your thoughts and documents.
Terry and I have been doing some network testing with the new SECN 2.0
beta firmware using Munin. In case you're interested, here are some
basic instructions on getting munin running on your MP network.
Instructions apply to SECN 2.0 beta only as the xinetd and muninlite
packages are specific to the 2.0 firmware. I'll have something up for

Dear list members,
The call for papers period for 2nd International Workshop on Community
Networks and Bottom-up-Broadband (CNBuB2013)  is opened until June 15th.
that can run Linux/OpenWRT with a built-in wifi chipset that is supported
by Madwifi drivers.
Terry and I have been beavering away at the 2.0 firmware and we are close
to releasing an RC version which has a number of improvements. More about
that shortly. But one thing that will be unchanged is the status page
which provides output on the status of mesh connections and wireless
I've recently had the privilege of working with a mesh potato. After
gaining access via openwrt failsafe, I saw it was running a minimal
customised OpenWRT install compiled from scratch and utilising olsr for

ICTD2013 call for demos is now open. Please find the information below, and
help us spread the word.
I still remember when I met Steve presenting the Mesh Potatoes in London in
ICTD2010, and check where I am now.
There have been no recent efforts to do this.
That said, we would love to see the necessary work happen to re-integrate
the two (they used to work together).
The main issue is that Serval now uses its own VoMP (Voice over Mesh
Protocol) instead of SIP+RTP for voice calls, and uses its own DNA
network . if anyone has an idea to do it please help me

Is there anyone in Johannesburg who would be interested in helping someone
get a mesh network off the ground? A friend of mine wants to create a WiFi
mesh network in his neighbourhood that would provide free access for
domestic workers, visitors to the community etc. Please write me offline
checking the list of hardware from open-wrt the Ubnt Rocket is not in
there, and so I guess it would not be possible to get VT-SECN running on
it, is there any way this can be done? or just wait for the people from
open-wrt to provide the source?
thanks in advance,

im looking at bonding / load balancing multiple connections. Im awear of
devices such as Peplink and Mushroom networks have devices that can do this
, im wondering who has been down this road before and what solution was
used to achieve this.
You may remember Glen and Carlo who made that awesome 2.5km Mesh Potato
test last year ([link])
Recently they gave a talk on Village Telco and meshed WiFi networks at
the Manly Warringah Radio Society. They do an exceptional job of mixing
both high level and technical concepts into a single presentation. There

smartphones and tablets. However, I'm finding it quite hard to obtain the
WiFi features of these devices. Anyone has any reference parameters i could
use or any idea where could I find these data?
