Does your government have an Internet kill-switch? Read our guide to Guerrilla Networking and be prepared for when the lines get cut.




Im not tech minded and will be getting my boyfriend to read and bookmark this. I feel this is going to be helpful to us in the future.

Feel free to discuss and I will read along

Re: Get Internet Access When Your Government Shuts It Down
after Hurricane Katrina there was NO phone service of any kind, not home phones, nor cell phones. I am still stumped about this but it is a fact. Even the local police could not communicate to each other, something weird was afoot then, I still think that whole thing was a test

I hear this from a lot of Americans.

Whatever it was I think Hurricane Katrina shows us that we need to be prepared.

Im on Janeys Egyptian protest thread and what it shows me is that us people can be so resourseful and community does exist even when it doesnt appear so.

Having internet and phone access during crisis is so important and I hope that we can live and learn from Hurricane Katrina and Egypt.

Get a short-wave radio and twist the dial for ham radio operators. Get a World Band Radio book. Get a short-wave radio even if it is used, if it works.

Heh what if the power goes out too?

Can this still work if people are operating with generators?

I just envision a network of people in their "command centers" in their basements all chatting to one another.

"W4rl0rD: hey all yep system went down were too L33t for the feds
[email protected]: yeah lols lets play WoW while the world burns down"

Yep... can totally envision that.

It's a good idea. It's like a citywide local area network made from as much wifi routers as there are close enough to each other. It would work in big cities where enough people living close to each other install the program that opens their wifi routers to this adhoc network.

Do you know how to operate one? When SHTF it's going to be a little late to run down to walmart and pick one up. I'm just saying, it'd be a valuable tool and it'd be best to be prepared to use that tool effectively.
