More Info
Neither Protocol reference nor library docs. I want detailed information on how to use airhook. How the advantages of airhook over tcp are demonstrated.

Are you looking for protocol reference (http://airhook.org/protocol.html), library documentation (http://airhook.org/library.html), or something else (what?)?

Actually, Airhook is more applicable for WWAN systems like CDPD or GPRS than for WLAN systems like 802.11b, though of course nothing stops you from using it. WLANs are pretty good about reliable quick packet delivery, bandwidth is high, latency is low, and people don't generally use them while moving (a major cause of WWAN carrier dropouts).

The core Airhook protocol implementation is pure ANSI C and should compile on any platform. The sample programs and utilites are POSIX-only, but should not be hard to port.

Great Idea
Wow. I want this. Every free 802.11b network should support this. Is a Windows version of the protocal in the works? That way this very good idea can spread faster...
