In my environment there are nodes that have two ways to reach the 
CORE-Router (one direct DSL-Connection, and one Wireless-Connection for 
backup reasons).

In case of DSL-Connection failure, OLSR change dynamicly to the 
wireless-connection and updates all neighbours routing-informations.

I've got a very good tipp from "Markus Kittenberg" to install v0.5.6-r7 
on each machine and configure it to a another OLSR-Port and other 
Routing-Table. So i'm able to test the code on my production-systems. If 
you like to fix this problem?

Of course, OLSR is doing so much things that i don't need. But OLSR was 
the best solution for me and was usable out of the box. OSPF should be 
the best for me, but OSPF is to hard to understand for me. Perhaps 
B.A.T.M.A.N will do the job.
