Yes, thats the right subnet.

This is the basic model for an olsrv2 router:

1) Use an address prefix between and
for each of the interfaces you want to talk OLSRv2 on.
2) Use a different address range (e.g. 10.0.0.x) on the loopback interface.
3) Don't worry for computers/interfaces without OLSRv2 on them at the
3) Start OLSRv2 with each of the "mesh" interfaces as a parameter.


router 1

   ./olsrd2 wlan0 lo

router 2

   ./olsrd2 wlan0 lo

(and similar on folllowing routers)

When you run the routing agent, you should see additional routes for all
the 10.0.0.x addresses in range (run "ip route" to look for them).
