The 4G AccessCube is a new hardware platform dedicated to WirelessLan MeshRouting, developed by 4G Systems, Hamburg, Germany. With a 400MHz MIPS processor, 64MB RAM, 32MB flash and up to 8 MiniPci cards, it is powerful enough to provide excellent security and encryption, and flexible enough for custom applications and modifications. See section HardWare for more details about the hardware.
The software on the AccessCube is nylon, a specialized Linux distribution for WirelessLan and MeshRouting. Its main features are networking in general, WirelessLan, routing, MeshRouting, autoconfiguration, an emphasis on security (IpSec, VPN) and a compact design to fit on the 32MB flash. It is completely licensed under an OpenSource licence and is based on OpenEmbedded (more: NyLon)

02.05.2005: stable release (0.8): finally the long awaited stable release of nylon. contains a lot of updates and improvements, most notably a new version of the atheros a/b/g driver "madwifi", a new version of hostap, hostapd with WPA/WPA2 support for both drivers, olsrd 0.4.9 and also an improved install-image script (see the ChangeLog). DownLoad.
29.04.2004: server problems: meshcube.org was a victim of a dirty abuse. Therefore we had to shutdown meshcube.org for doing a fresh OS install including all services. Now anything should by fine again, hopefully.
11.01.2005: nylon testing release (0.8pre2): several small fixes and improvements (see: ChangeLog). if there are not any new bugs i hope to release this version as "stable" soon, so please DownLoad, try it, NylonBuild it and report bugs.
23.12.2004: nylon testing release (0.8pre1): Only a small bugfix for the build process.
22.12.2004: nylon testing release (0.8pre): A new testing release is uploading right now. This reflects the major structural changes within OpenEmbedded recently. Also it includes important bugfixes such as fixed bash signal handling as well as I2C kernel support and better image names. And unik-olsrd has be renamed to just olsrd since it is not a "unik" project anymore. Along with this release I have reworked most of the documentation in the Wiki, and hope it is much clearer now. Actually i still hope to be able to release a "stable" version this year.
