Hello Marek,

    Thank you for replying. I have one final question about this.

    How about in the laptops / pcs that access the WRT54G, which make
the "infrastructure" of the mesh? What kind of adapters do you use on

     That would be really helpful - I'm trying to contact the rt73
drivers guys for the last week and got no response from them. If
anyone could confirm whether these Edimax dongles could set a static
BSSID, that would help us decide which equipment to buy for building
our ad hoc network test-bed.
