Description of Daihinia 1.7.8
Build your WiFi Mesh Network with regular hardware
Daihinia is a tool for WiFi. It turns a simple Ad-Hoc network into a Multi-hop Ad-Hoc network. Multi-hop Ad-Hoc networks offer a higher level of flexibility than the usual Infrastructure Mode: in Infrastructure Mode all the computers have to be in the range of the Access Point, while in Multi-hop Ad-Hoc networks they have to be within one another range.
Basically, Daihinia offers a Mesh Network layer for WiFi Ad-Hoc networks, thus making the network infrastructure be implicitly maintained by the users themselves. It's a nice idea that a network user supports the network around him/her just by the fact that he/she uses the network.
Unlike other solutions that allow mesh topology only between Access Points, Daihinia puts it directly onto computers and does not use Access Points at all. Daihinia is implemented as a network driver for Windows systems and is completely transparent to the programs.

Editor's review for Daihinia
Do you have a home or office in which you sometimes lose your wireless network’s signal? Are there areas of your structure where the signal seems to fail? What if you could use other computers as signal boosters rather than relying on just one router? That’s the idea behind Daihinia, a revolutionary wireless networking tool from author Vitalie Vrabie.
The concept behind Daihinia is simple enough. If you don’t need to rely on one base station sending your wireless signal but instead can use each computer to spread it throughout your structure, there are likely to be few if any areas in which the signal can’t be read. And this can be done without dramatically affecting the speed of your wireless network.
How does it work? Daihinia is actually a network driver that is added to your system. It does not replace your current network adapter but allows you to switch between your regular network adapter and Daihinia. Let’s say you want to create a Daihinia network with your computer as the source of the internet connection. You would first install the driver, then select Daihinia from your list of network adapters.
Next, you would use Windows to create an Ad-Hoc network with an SSID prefixed by Daihinia. This is how other machines will recognize that your network is a Daihinia network. Just make sure all machines that are going to connect to your new network share the same security settings, and you’re all set.
All that’s left is to connect to the internet, which you do by the same method you would if you were going to share your network connection. Just open the properties for the adapter connected to the internet and tell Windows you want to allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection. It’s that simple.
So, the possible applications of Daihinia are many, from improving connectivity in a larger home to deploying a chain of Daihinia computers so a wireless signal can reach your entire office, inside and out, if you like.
