    Welcome to the CTWUG website!

    CTWUG is a Cape Town based operation geared towards community based wireless networking and is a non-profit entity. Our aim is to promote the use and understanding of 802.11 wireless equipment and to build a citywide free wireless network available to all.

    All equipment is standard Wi-Fi equipment. CTWUG is built using wireless devices that operate on either the 2.4GHz or 5.8GHz free-to-air frequencies and as such no licenses are required. The CTWUG network works much like a small version of the internet. Many houses, buildings and high sites make up a mesh of interconnected nodes able to pass traffic along to the next, making it possible to connect all nodes on the network.

    CTWUG is a not just a network CTWUG is a learning experience for everyone from novices to experts. Joining and setting up your node is the first learning experience for new users and is just the beginning of a never-ending journey of learning.

    Many users of CTWUG test pilot programs, software, hardware and other computer related experiments on the network as it is a great way to perform Research & Development on a large scale, completely private network.
