[App_rpt-users] Portable Nodes

I made a modified version of Limey that has support for WiFi and one or two USB WiFI adapters. It worked. It took a while to learn my way around Limey Linux, which I also added wirelesstools to. I remember that I had broken something in the distro, though. I can't remember what, this is a couple of years ago, and I was able to find a new location for the computer that had a router 3' away, so no need for wifi any longer. 

But it ran off a CF card and I can't remember which wifi adapter I had compiled into the kernel, which also needed an adjustment to libraries.

I know this isn't clear at all...sorry, it is hazy in my memory.

  Hi All,

   

  I was just wondering what people have deployed as a "node in a box" solution.

   

  I'm toying with building a portable node that can use either WiFi or 3G and which can be set-up in an arbitrary location as required. The general idea being aimed at emergency communications.

   

  So, what radios, what computer power (RTCM, perhaps?), what power arrangements?
