About Melbourne Wireless
Melbourne Wireless Inc is a non-profit group aiming to establish a fast, free, metropolitan area wireless network based on existing off-the-shelf 802.11 based equipment.
Getting started in wireless can be inexpensive. We coordinate group purchases to help people get wireless equipment cheaply. People can organise group purchases of popular equipment and keep the price down for everyone.
Wireless network equipment (typically 802.11b) operates at a frequency of 2.4GHz, which means the users do not need a licence to get involved. Regulations are governed by the Australian Communications Authority, with limits on power output.
Get in contact with people in your area by putting your details in our online map. Check out the FAQ to learn more about wireless networking.
It is a very good idea to join one of the regional groups in your local area. They will be able to offer advice, and lend a hand when you need assistance.
