My opinion on those simulator is that they are not reliable enough to
simulate everything (reflections, etc).

But what I would appreciate for next WBMs is more infos from the
physical layer, even including RF sniffers/loggers in an outdoor

There are too many assumptions from routing protocol mesh developers,
because most of them stay at layer3.

Next WBM should have some Horst nodes in monitor mode:


Too bad the RTL dongles do not cover 2.4Ghz.

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
