[Olsr-users] Freifunk mesh set up
Sun Sep 30 16:30:13 CEST 2007
because of my German is not so good, I've decided to ask for help here
first, before I take a look around at the Freifunk mailing lists.
I'm pretty newbie to OLSR and Freifunk and I'm not a networking expert,
but I'm trying to set up an experimental mesh network.
I'm using two Linksys WRT54GS v4 routers with Freifunk 1.6.4 firmware.
My aim is to connect to Node2 with my laptop (which has no OLSR) and
reach the internet via Node1 (witch one is the internet gateway), so the
network architecture is pretty simple: Laptop-->Node2-->Node1-->Internet.
When this one works, I also would like to extend the network with new
routers and clients (clients will not use OLSR).
I've made the exact same settings described in this article:
The problem is, that the routers ain't communicate with each other (they
sending out OLSR messages, but with strange message type values), they
can't ping each other, and there's no entries at the OLSR table under
the Status menu in the web interface.
Can you tell me what else should I set up to get the network running?
It would be also helpful if someone could send me a working network
configuration (with a few details).
Thanks in advance.
