Since OpenWRT introduced Mesh networking I haven’t been able to use or test anything, and I’m looking for good ressources to help choose between protocols, firmwares, and hardware / device chipsets ?
I know about OLSR, B.A.T.M.A.N, and had a chance to run and test Byzantium Live OS back when it was a thing.
Is B.A.T.M.A.N the better approach for an easy/reliable Mesh setup ? Does it run easily on simple devices (not routers) ?
For routers, are there other open source firmwares more suited to Mesh networking than openWRT, that will work on a lot of devices and are reliable ?
