Spelling: MelbourneWirelessFirmware

The Melbourne Wireless Firmware is a firmware image for wireless
routers for the purpose of creating and extending the Melbourne
Wireless community network.

Currently, the Melbourne Wireless Firmware is a slightly-modified
FreifunkFrank, Franck, Franky, Forefinger, Freephone, Frankie, Franker, Franco Firmware image. Customisations and localisations will be
added via add-on packages. We will stick with FreifunkFrank, Franck, Franky, Forefinger, Freephone, Frankie, Franker, Franco until it's
planned merge back into OpenWRTOpenest, Opened, Operate, Operetta, Penrod, Opponent, Opined, Upend, Upended, Operator, Operand [1].

FUTURE PLANS

Planned add-on features for the Melbourne Wireless firmware include
the integration of the MWHotspotHotpot, Nightspot, Despot, Mahouts, Hottest, Modesto, Disport, Mahout's, Bloodsport, Modest, Mutest, Waterspout, Moistest, Hadst [2] package. Also planned are further
social networking features such as guestbooksguest books, guest-books, guidebooks, textbooks, guidebook's, casebooks, textbook's, coursebooks, casebook's and other ways to
communicate with other users of the same hotspot.

FIRMWARE BUILDER

The Firmware is distributed via the Melbourne Wireless website using
the Firmware Builder [3]. The Firmware Builder makes the task of
configuring and customising the firmware very easy.

radio communication to other Melbourne Wireless Firmware nodes
* Radio is in AdhocADC, Adham, Adj, Idaho, Idahos, Attic, Adhara, Adhere, Educ, OTC, Adage, Idaho's mode, on Channel 10, with the SSIDSS ID, SS-ID, SAID, SID, SKID, SLID

to the Melbourne Wireless network.

WAN:

* Is unconfiguredconfigured, reconfigured, unconfirmed, unconquered, unconfined, unconfused, unconsidered by default
* Not all routers have a WAN port - e.g. the WL-HDD
* OLSROLES, ILSE, OLSEN, OILS, OWLS, ELSE, ILSA, OLSON, ELSA, ELSI, ELSY, USSR, ALSO, OIL'S, OWL'S, OLA'S, OLE'S, AOL'S, AL'S, EL'S can be made to run on this interface and be cable-linked to
other FreifunkFrank, Franck, Franky, Forefinger, Freephone, Frankie, Franker, Franco boxes (apparently - untested)

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

The primary design aim behind the firmware is reducing the
learning-curve and the hardware costs involved in building a node.
These have previously been major barriers to participation in the
Melbourne Wireless network. Using OLSROLES, ILSE, OLSEN, OILS, OWLS, ELSE, ILSA, OLSON, ELSA, ELSI, ELSY, USSR, ALSO, OIL'S, OWL'S, OLA'S, OLE'S, AOL'S, AL'S, EL'S routing in conjunction with a
single wifiwife, Fifi, Wini radio in adhocADC, Adham, adj, Idaho, Idahos, Attic, attic, Adhara, adhere, educ, OTC, adage, Idaho's mode with an omnidirectional antenna allows
node-owners to make links with similar nearby nodes easily, with no
pre-planning required. The hardware costs for such a single-radio node
are a fraction of the cost of a multi-radio node that uses directional
antennas. However, for node-owners wanting to add more radios to their
setup, multiple routers can be connected together at the same
location. Or the node-owner can build their own router and their own
operating system, run the OLSROLES, ILSE, OLSEN, OILS, OWLS, ELSE, ILSA, OLSON, ELSA, ELSI, ELSY, USSR, ALSO, OIL'S, OWL'S, OLA'S, OLE'S, AOL'S, AL'S, EL'S protocol on it and be compatible with
the Melbourne Wireless Firmware.

The FreifunkFrank, Franck, Franky, Forefinger, Freephone, Frankie, Franker, Franco Firmware is based on OpenWRTOpenest, Opened, Operate, Operetta, Penrod, Opponent, Opined, Upend, Upended, Operator, Operand [6] WhiteRussianWhite Russian, White-Russian, Whitewashing, Iteration, Wittering, Reiteration, Rhetorician, Watering, Derision, Veteran, Nitration, Patrician, Titration [7]. Any
of the routers listed as being supported by WhiteRussianWhite Russian, White-Russian, Whitewashing, Iteration, Wittering, Reiteration, Rhetorician, Watering, Derision, Veteran, Nitration, Patrician, Titration [8] on the
OpenWRTOpenest, Opened, Operate, Operetta, Penrod, Opponent, Opined, Upend, Upended, Operator, Operand [9] Table Of Hardware [10] in theory is compaitblecompatible, compatibly, compatibles, computable, comparable with the
Melbourne Wireless firmware. We have found that currently the most
easily available compatible routers in Australia are the AsusAs us, As-us, Ass, Asks, Asps, Anus, Au's, Asa's, Ase's, Asp's, Ass's, Ash's WL-HDD,
WL-500g and WL-500g Premium. Older versions of the LinksysLinks, Lindsy's, Link's, Linkers, Linkups, Linuxes, Lindsay's, Lindsey's, Linzy's, Lenka's, Lionises, Linc's, Lenses, Lynx's, Lynsey's WRT54G and
the WRT54GL are also compatible. We eagerly await the first stable
release of OpenWRTOpenest, Opened, Operate, Operetta, Penrod, Opponent, Opined, Upend, Upended, Operator, Operand [11] Kamikaze so that we can create a
Kamikaze-derived Melbourne Wireless Firmware for the MerakiMerak, Merak's, Merck Mini [12]
community wireless router.

INSTALLATION

The Melbourne Wireless firmware images can be flashed (installed) to
a compatible router by the end-user. The installation method can vary
between routers - the best documentation is the OpenWRTOpenest, Opened, Operate, Operetta, Penrod, Opponent, Opined, Upend, Upended, Operator, Operand Installation
Guide [13]. If you have an AsusAs us, As-us, Ass, Asks, Asps, Anus, Au's, Asa's, Ase's, Asp's, Ass's, Ash's wl-500g Premium [14], please pay
special attention to the OpenWRTOpenest, Opened, Operate, Operetta, Penrod, Opponent, Opined, Upend, Upended, Operator, Operand [15] installation notes for this
device.
