Here is some Freifunk notes on the topic ```
It is from a script. Node-Config
6.2. Using IEEE 802.11s
You can use the new IEEE 802.11s mesh mode instead of the new ad-hoc. To do so, you need to modify
wireless.sh - example for radio0 (first radio, 2.4 Ghz usually).
set wireless.wifi_mesh.network='mesh babel_mesh'
When modifying the 5 Ghz network, use
wifi_mesh5 instead of
mesh_fwding='0' disables forwarding in the IEEE 802.11s mesh network. Forwarding is disabled , because Babel and batman-adv need to see the topology on their own. Forwarding would hide the structure of network from both babel and batman-adv. In addition, it is redundant to batman-adv.
If experimenting with IEEE 802.11s mesh forwarding:
- Disable batman-adv - directly attach the mesh interfaces to the Freifunk bridge
- Try to make babeld using the overlay metric
- Avoid re-transmitting babel messages - IEEE 802.11s will distribute them anyway.
- Happy hacking :-).
