My question is;
If an organization wanted to set up an FTP wireless server with huge TB access, could the wireless signal and access be relayed across the nation? I would think it could be, theoretically.
Obviously someone in say, Nevada, wouldn't be able to get a wireless signal in Texas, so could the signal be 'bounced' from user to user all the way to Nevada?
It would be a completely privatized network, only accessible by users granted permission, I suppose, thereby allowing a flow of information and communication in the event of mainstream internet censorship.
The quick answer... yes. The long answer would require an in-depth discussion on TCP/IP routing technologies. The type of services (file, ftp, web, etc.) is irrelevant with regard to the basic connectivity issue. The basic components involved are routers, bridges, AP's, repeaters and DNS servers (if you wish to use names instead of just numbers). Keep in mind that consumer and small-business grade repeaters and bridges have limited range, so you'd have to figure a locale under your control every 300ft or so... maybe longer in some cases.
So yea, it's feasible, but would be a ridiculous setup (from Texas to Nevada).
