[OLSR-users] Mobile node(s) in dead spot

My embedded computer wants to send GPS data every 10 secs.
But I dont want to store them in my application memory and keep retrying until the radio
establishes the connection with the gateway.

I want to configure the MANET so that it can buffer the data 
locally and forward them. The gateway may not be visible directly therefore 
the radios should be able to do multihopping-buffering-forwarding etc. 

Data transmission in real time is not necessary, but if the gateway is in sight 
then it should happen in real time. 

Can olsr be configured to be used in above manner? 
Any pointers would be of great help.

Also, is there any place(link to sites) where i can find USB-wifi compatible with linux running on Xscale processor?

No. olsr is a routing protocol that handles how trafic passes betweene
two nodes i (more or less) realtime.

What you need is a system that makes some sort of store and forward. 

What data do you need to transmit?

olsr don't care what sort of devices you use. If our computer can speak
with the device olsr also can.

pcu-wifi, usb-wifi, serial, wired-ethernet, laser-light or (in theory)
