    Does any one have any expereince using Dahinia on a Mac or something similar? Its a PC app for creating a local-mesh type network. (see below)

    From: http://dahinia.com
    "Daihinia™ is a tool for WiFi. It turns a simple Ad-Hoc network into a Multi-hop Ad-Hoc network. Multi-hop Ad-Hoc networks offer a higher level of flexibility than the usual Infrastructure Mode: in Infrastructure Mode all the computers have to be in the range of the Access Point, while in Multi-hop Ad-Hoc networks they have to be within one another's range."

    I'm not usually a "doom&gloom" guy, but I like the idea of being able to stay connected even when the govt thinks it's not a good idea.(see below)

    Cheers

    Turn on the "Allow this network to be extended" feature in your wireless router? Most wireless router, including those made by Apple, allow you to create an extended network.

    Or do you mean without wireless routers? You may be able to do that by turning your Mac into a wireless access point?
