Hello Raj,

  Early last month as part of media lab our team had worked towards 
interconnecting certain villages in rural karnataka.

  Amir hussain, the Principal Researcher of Daknet is leaving for MIT
very soon. He may be of assistance in helping anyone setup-deploy-manage
these networks linking these remote villages with the mainstream
population through 802.11x.

  Write in to Amir/me and i will do my best to guide you to the right

   Bye for now and have a nice day Raj.
