Mesh Networking Hop Efficiency or Loss?


I ran open-mesh, BATMAN and Robin 6 years ago.

I'm wondering if with the OLSR project things have gotten more efficient in loss of bandwidth from the initial gateway.

I was seeing my broadband cut in half (eg. 15mbps cable or 5mbps DSL) on the 1st hop away from the gateway, then the 2nd hop, well, you don't want to use the internets anymore.

What is the most efficient open firmware package now? What is the percentage loss on the 1st and 2nd hop?

I have access to wifi radios which can handle most any mesh firmware, that's not my issue. I just really want to see the hop efficiency before I commit to network design.

Is it really worth losing all that bandwidth or should I just stick to star networks on OpenWRT?

Thank you.
