Create a handbook section about how to use Wireless Mesh Networking FreeBSD
Status: Closed Time to complete: 120 hrs Mentors: Wojciech A. Koszek Tags: WiFi, DocBook, documentation, SGML, wireless, mesh, FreeBSD

Description of task

There is a howto in the FreeBSD wiki on how to create and use a wireless network with FreeBSD:

http://wiki.freebsd.org/WifiMesh

We want to have this in a separate article to instruct our users on how to create such a network. If possible, the howto needs to be checked whether it still works as described.

Task requires:

A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer.
Several FreeBSD systems (on real hardware) with mesh-supported wireless network cards would be an advantage. 
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/ 
Check out a copy of the documentation tree from the documentation repository to get the source code for the chapter
