unixlinuxiosguy Posted July 17, 2016 Share Posted July 17, 2016 From a security standpoint I really like the openwireless.org and pirateboxes. Not for illegal, immoral or fattening use but to lose that ' I feel like I am watched" and you are feeling! From reading as well as experiential situations I have found a prolonged undesired 'program'. This is in special projects parts of fedora (wiki-fedora) and subsidized by the largest of the companies if you catch my drift. There is an IP address per person essentially . That is why I am very happy to see people setting up Guest AP and Tor networks (instructables Guest AP Tor project). Because xfinity and Comcast have three wireless networks and four Ethernet ports each with a separate IP address . There have been lawsuits against this and the people won. From confidential sources I know of many more even class-action suits are on the way. How does this fit on? Well, I used to have a great commodore system using packet radio at that time on a ham band. Living in Philadelphia then and even better now a dedicated system running on the minimum resources with the guest Tor router and AP would be great for security as well as helping those who do not have access to Internet and you may be helping a neighbor that has children that really need it for school or giving a stay at home mom or dad the opportunity to work from home. This can be set up with a commodore, an Atari or Vic even a Pi! The pirateboxes is the coolest embodiment of the idea where the same type of equipment is used and placed on a non license needed radio band probably with a benfang(AP) radio with just enough distance to not interfere with anything like a gmrs, stormbringer I need your input on this. I used in the past a completely self contained solar powered units some placed on billboards high up and some on roofs of abandonminiums. At Drexel for instance some friends and I used an old satellite wiring setup and gave us a great repeater and helped a couple homeless people the ability to use the Internet and believe it or not, two families were actually able to rise above the homeless desperate circumstances they were in. This is probably not the norm of course. I've even seen wireless dead drops as such for many people to access data and get some use out of the old equipment that was on its way to the recycle center. I hope this little intro brings out some cool wireless gaming opportunities. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
