Description:A team of tech pros has written this how-to guide for installing wireless networks in third world countries. I can’t overstate the importance of this—gettting the internet to impoverished areas is key to helping them learn and develop. One of the goals of this site is to use the web to spread knowledge. This book lets the web in, so that people can access that knowledge.

The book will soon be available in print from I’m hosting a mirror of the book arranged for screen viewing. Other download options at the website include a PDF set up for print viewing and individual chapters. The site also has email lists and a wiki where you can read and contribute case studies.

From the site:

The massive popularity of wireless networking has caused equipment costs to continually plummet, while equipment capabilities continue to increase. By applying this technology in areas that are badly in need of critical communications infrastructure, more people can be brought online than ever before, in less time, for very little cost. We hope to not only convince you that this is possible, but also show how we have made such networks work, and to give you the information and tools you need to start a network project in your local community.

This book was created by a team of individuals who each, in their own field, are actively participating in the ever-expanding Internet by pushing its reach farther than ever before. Over a period of a few months, we have produced a complete book that documents our efforts to build wireless networks in the developing world.
