Scenario 1: Indoor USB Wireless solution (100m from nearest neighbour node)

A simple cheap wireless LAN USB device can be bought and the mesh software can then be loaded on the computer. This setup is ideal for short range communication between a desily distrubuted cluster of houses that you find in a town house complex.

Scenario 2: Outdoor USB Wireless solution (300m from nearest neighbour node)

Using a stick USB WiFi adapter, it is possible to plug a USB cable extender into a computer at one end and the USB WiFi adapter at the other end. The maximum distance allowed on such a USB cable is 5m unless a hub is used in between the devices. The USB adapter can then be mounted inside a tin can to help boost the gain.
