Hm, I am not really sure if I understood it right - you want to
advanced to access another network (internet....), correct?
Just insmod it everywhere, add outgoing interface to /proc/net/batman-
adv/interfaces and let one machine (router to the internet for example) play
the dhcpd. This machine should only deliver new ip addresses to the other
machines and inform everyone else that they should use his ip as default
router. Then you must know if you want to use it as nat or as normal router (
just enable ipv4_forward).
So it is just the same procedure as building a normal openwrt router/gateway
with the small difference that all "clients" are talking over the bat0
interface instead of the wlanX/ethY interface. It is nearly the same as
configuring a normal openwrt. So parts of
can be used.
Setting up the wifi should be the same as always:
wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode adhoc
iwconfig ath0 essid testnet
iwconfig ath0 ap 02:00:de:ad:be:ef
iwconfig ath0 channel 10
ifconfig ath up
echo "ath0" > /proc/net/batman-adv/interfaces
(maybe I got it right... don't have the hardware to test it now).
I'm using OPENWRT and I haven't found paper that
describe this kernel module (usage, configuration, how work).
But I am relative sure that you have read it because you have reported a bug
when somebody tries to add new interfaces to /proc/net/batman-adv/interfaces.
Please ask a little more specific if I didn't answer your question. And feel
free to write your setup down (small howto or so) so other people can access
you knowledge afterwards (maybe marec can add it to the trac wiki).
