Dear Gui and all,

i searched for LibreRouter.



Open Router

LibreRouter project awarded FRIDA 2016 scale-up grant

It seems to me a big confusion. I agree and understand to develop the 
router hardware itself. But from my experience in Latin America, also in 
Argentina, never i have found a real strong process for hw-development.

And in Github Librerouter/Librekernel we find a large collection of 
anything. But the task for a router is to route the packets through. 
Therefore, the fisrst question is, based on what information we can 
route. then, we can ask us, what hardware we need.

And the routers in our environment act mostly with radio 
interconnection. But here we can abstract from the concrete transmission 
technology and use a bidirectional connection to the transmitter device. 
For cable connection we can use it directly.

This means, that in our space also the transmission technology stay in 
the center. And i think, there we have the biggest challenges. because 
if we look in the community networks reality, the lack of net-structure 
is the biggest lack for community networks.

I don't understand this project.

many greetings, willi
Asuncion, Paraguay
