In this paper, two essential components of the layer 3 WMN, routing and rate-switch control, and initial network formation are discussed. The major part of routing protocol is composed of MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Network) routing protocol and we have adopted OLSRv2, that is in progress of standardization in IETF MANET WG. Outdoor and indoor WMN testbeds are described to develop these WMN protocols together with some experimental results. A newly developed node prototype for WMNs and a WMN testbed
