IEEE 802.11 WiFi equipment based wireless mesh networks have recently been proposed as an inexpensive approach to connect far-flung rural areas. Such networks are built using high-gain directional antennas that can establish long-distance wireless point-to-point links. Some nodes in the network (called gateway nodes) are directly connected to the wired internet, and the remaining nodes connect to the gateway(s) using one or more hops. The dominant cost of constructing such a mesh network is thedoi:10.1109/infocom.2007.128 fatcat:kmiaqtx7a5djxldvil6ki4eppy
