Introduction

Welcome to the Wireless Node Database Website! This website aids in the networking and identification of wireless points in the Cape Town Wireless User Group (CTWUG) situated around South Africa. This is a non-profit organisation that aids and helps educate willing people wanting to learn about wireless technologies as well as create a social infrastructure to meet new friends and keep old ones in contact.
