Create a handbook section about how to use Wireless Mesh Networking

completed by: Rushil Paul

mentors: Wojciech A. Koszek

Description of task

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:
