In reference to the ID-1's being basically ethernet bridges, depending on what your use case is, the best thing might be to stick a soho router off of each one. Use the router to limit what traffic gets sent across the RF link. You could accomplish the same with an Rpi and a small ethernet switch and some vlans. Very interested in what you find out in reference to the ID-1's capabilities and behaviors. I remember having the same thoughts about the ID-1 when it was released, "Oh this would be cool, but, y'know money" and "1.2Ghz, would be cool", but at the time I lived in an area that wasn't conducive to that band.

The paper is online as well, follow the links. I wonder what will happen to the Google software running the network. Given that it was running on Linux boxes it could be a great routing protocol for ham use.
