First socalwifi.net node deployed (El Segundo CA)

All I can say is WOW!!!

I deployed a NS2 in a client mode deployment for testing and put it through heavy usage (lots of voip/downloads/youtube etc) for 2 weeks. It worked flawlessly.

I then deployed it as a hot spot in El Segundo CA and it's working great.

Initial deployment was under the counter (closed on 3 sides) at a merchant and we got pretty good coverage of the whole strip mall.

Tonight I moved it up near the ceiling and coverage (as expected) dramatically improved. We now provide coverage to 1 square block or so.

I can't wait to load up a custom firmware image and start deploying a mesh.

NS2: 100.00
Wireless coverage you can count on: Priceless
