It's an okay networking technology.  It's a few generations behind what we're actually fielding these days but they're using OLSR for maintaining the routing table, so that's something.  It's also hams only, so I'd advise caution if you don't have your ticket but want to experiment with it, new nodes that aren't recognized will draw a lot of attention.

One of the gotchas from their FAQ: "You can't use Wi-Fi to connect to a mesh node from your computer, netbook, smart phone or other wireless device."  Back to hardwiring.

Go Ubiquiti.  Linksys hardware is bobbins these days.
