FYI:
WRT54GL_2 located in the same room (few meters away)
249-garage and 113-font located two rooms far
Soekris_146 located two floors far

...maybe it's worth giving it a chance as gateway

Any way to force a second hop node to connect to a repeater. With the throughput we appear to be getting, it looks like a 2-3 hops while maintaining 6-8Mbps throughput from the gateway would be possible.

Very interesting.

Looks very good. I'm glad to hear that we have got something like this going and stable all so quickly.

I tried a wrt54gl with firmware I compiled from the trunk but I get only a strange adhoc connection on the wifi. It shows up as "robin.mesh.com" Is the wifi supposed to work with these old broadcom devices?

It is my understanding they are mesh-only.

He means that they will only provide a mesh connection / hop - no connectivity for client devices as its not running an access point.

Thanks for the clarification. Is there a simple way to switch the wifi interface back to AP mode? I realize it will remove the mesh feature but I'm trying to get the captive portal on the both interfaces. tia

No, where do you think it gets the Internet from?
