@shi physical mesh is a very challenging thing. I have read some news about serval mesh being used in disaster areas in the past. part of the problem is that IP hates it when the spanning tree changes, you you waste a lot of bandwidth just keeping the routing info straight. losing IP means you can't use any existing network software without modifying it or trying to overlay IP on this other thing.

a systematic solution to adhoc mesh would be a full level up for network technology imo
