WiFIX: A New Solution for 802.11-based Wireless Mesh Networks

  title={WiFIX: A New Solution for 802.11-based Wireless Mesh Networks},
  author={Rui Campos and Ricardo Duarte and Filipe Sousa and Manuel Ricardo and J. A. Ruela},
Ubiquitous Internet access is becoming crucial for end-users due to the increasing number of services and applications supported over the Internet. Extending the coverage of current Wi-Fi infrastructures installed in companies, universities, and cities, has been considered a solution to help in fulfilling this requirement, namely when it comes to wireless and nomadic Internet access. This paper describes and analyses a new and simple solution, called Wi-Fi network Infrastructure eXtension… Expand
