Ok, Ming pointed out that running nodes in Ad-Hoc mode will make a lot more sense, since OLSR will take care of loops and can use signal strength to find the best route to a node. The script to scan for access points and associate with them was almost finished, but then I found linux-wlan-ng support wireless extensions if "options p80211 wlan_wext_write=1" is added to modprobe.conf. I will modify the script today and see if it works correctly. The next step is to get the dynamic gateway plugin to work. Last time I tried to use it, it segfaulted, but I have not looked into why too much. Worst case scenario I think I can put together a hack to do the same thing.
