    47 ORBIT is still under development. Please email us if you are interested in doing experiments with the ORBIT testbed and we can help you get started.  Until then, take a look at the Tutorials at http://www.orbit-lab.org/userdoc/wiki/Tutorial .

    176176We use Atheros AR5212-based 802.11 a/b/g cards as well as Intel Pro-wireless 2915-based 802.11 a/b/g cards. Nodes with x+y = even are Intel nodes where as x+y= odd are Atheros nodes.e.g node1-1 = Intel, node1-2 = Atheros and so on.
    177177**NOTE: This applies only to sb9 (64 node grid).**
    178 For the main grid, check http://www.orbit-lab.org/userdoc/wiki/IntelNodes.

    191 Yes, you can install your own OS (or a customized version of an ORBIT-supported OS) on any of the radio nodes. We provide infrastructure to image the node in an experiment with any experimenter provided OS. For further information, go to http://www.orbit-lab.org/userdoc/wiki/BuildingCustomOS

    309307Using default power levels on the cards, every node can hear everyone else directly (all are one hop).
    310 For multihop topologies, we normally use noise injection on sb9. For further details you can refer to the link http://www.orbit-lab.org/userdoc/wiki/Tutorial/UseNoise
     308For multihop topologies, we normally use noise injection on sb9. For further details you can refer to the link http://www.orbit-lab.org/wiki/Tutorial/UseNoise
    311309which will provide a pointer on the kinds of topologies possible with the current noise antenna positions and power levels.
