How difficult would it be to implement infrastructure for an opensource internet project?

You know every once and a while i forget that a lot of us where their when the internet was created,, and it just makes me want too say,, lol damn

The internet simple

" one home user with a modem and a computer and a large capacity hard drive ( recommended size ,, 32 meg or larger,,at least 128 megs of ram also recommended )
A BBS software set up can also be used,,
now just publish your phone number on any existing BBS system, and bingo internet,,

lol oh ya speeds of 133kb /minute are possible with a U.S Robotics Modem
(just change script in software,,etc,,
ahhh the old days before WWW or BBS all joined together,, net.

Freifunk for example would be relevant:
en.wikipedia.org...
de.wikipedia.org...
start.freifunk.net...
global.freifunk.net...

This was for example done in parts of Berlin:

Berliner_freifunk_netz_03-01-2007.jpg
where the T-Com was not able (not willing) to replace the old phone lines with DSL capable lines for many years.

It needs flashing a new modified firmware into a LinkSys wireless router to allow it automatically finding other routers and build a self organizing mesh network which can automatically route and forward packages to any destination.

I didn't read all the replies so forgive me if this has been covered. We have to remember that TOR uses the existing networking infrastructure. You get it through your ISP. TOR has already been tracked by various government agencies.

To do what you are suggesting would require the following:

NO phone connection (who's got a modem these days or would even consider going down to 54k? Plus digital phone lines really, really don't like modems.)
NO ISP connection. (ISP=government authority)

That cuts your options to wireless or a new infrastructure. A new infrastructure would invite tapping by the government, regulatory hoops ("We have to make sure no laws are broken after all").

What this brings you to is a wireless mesh network. This has been discussed a few times on ATS. Wireless mesh assumes that everyone will cooperate and honesty by everyone using it. Good luck.

Crap, another edit on one of my posts. Two words:

Cellular modems.

Well the main point is that if you're using TOR, or really any other privacy layer like that .. the moment you visit a public site and log in you've given up your credentials .. so now your TOR link is associated to your ATS username ...

BBS system
using landlines with old style clic,click relays (pulse phone is new,,or is it the other way around ,, forget)
and secure phone numbers.

only weakness is in who gets phone numbers,, but once into the BBS,,all relevent stuff,,, ie pictures etc could be accessed AND transfered completely secure.

in my humble opinion.

some really great ideas. I will be taking the time to send a link to this thread to the various groups undertaking such projects in the hopes of bringing them together, or that they can glean some good ideas from it. Keep them coming!
