[Olsr-users] Fwd: Multi-Hop Pinging

A project I've been working on requires data to be sent on multihop
network. I've used 3 laptops which has Broadcom BCM4365 wireless hybrid
adapter and a Linksys WRT 54GL. It is running OLSR 0.6.7. As the loss was
very high when the laptops are kept afar, I've put the laptops in the same
room. The topology is A <--> B <--> C <-->D, A,B,C being laptops and D
being the Router. Device A can send data only to B blocking C and D, B can
send data to A and C but blocked D, C can send data to B and D, but blocked
A and D can send data to C but blocked A and B, sending data to just the
immediate neighbors. Now in olsr routing table, it shows all 2nd hop
possibilities in all 3 laptops and router. The laptops A and B can ping
laptop C, but not the router D. The router can ping only its immediate
neighbor C. Is this problem due to incompatibility of network adapters of
laptop or should I replace the laptops with the router or is there any
other solution?

Thank you.
