Daihinia is a tool for WiFi. It turns a simple Ad-Hoc network into a Multi-hop Ad-Hoc network. Multi-hop Ad-Hoc networks offer a higher level of flexibility than the usual Infrastructure Mode: in Infrastructure Mode all the computers have to be in the range of the Access Point, while in Multi-hop Ad-Hoc networks they have to be within one another's range, possibly forming chains longer than one hop.
Basically, Daihinia offers a Mesh Network layer for WiFi Ad-Hoc networks, thus making the network infrastructure be implicitly maintained by the users themselves. It's a nice idea that a network user supports the network around him/her just by the fact that he/she uses the network.
Unlike other solutions that allow mesh topology only between Access Points, Daihinia puts it directly onto computers and does not use Access Points at all. Daihinia is implemented as a network driver for Windows systems and is completely transparent for programs.

[+] Easy Internet Sharing is a new feature, to enable internet sharing directly from the Control App.
[*] Almost all explanatory texts were rewritten.
[+] new tab added to Control App for quick access to Network Connections where users can share their Internet connection into their Daihinia network.
[+] it is now possible to opt-out from checking for new versions (checkbox on the About page in Control App).
[+] better-looking skin.
[-] there was a problem when entering the unlock key
[+] added a human-understandable explanation on the system error about too many network filters.
[-] update checker scheduled task was not created on xp-based systems.
[-] there was a problem with the updates checker.
[+] added some support for non-DMA wireless adapters.
[-] fixed that strange situation when sometimes DHCP was working but ARP was not.
[+] transit packets are now queued first, then sent in batches; it increases throughput performance on adapters that support bursting.
[+] on Vista and upper, we might get notification from the underlying driver that a neighbor node has connected with us; in this case we can mark it as a bidi link without trying to talk with it first, this saves time when establishing new routes.
[+] on Vista and upper, we might get notifications from the underlying driver when a peer node disconnects; in this case we clean up our tables quicker than waiting for timeout, and new routes around the disconnected node may be established faster.
[+] all possible security+encryption options were added to create adhoc net dialog, this allows you to experiment.
[+] digital signature is now embedded and timestamped, this allows you to install Daihinia while offline.
[-] fixed bugs in password validation of the Create Ad-Hoc dialog.
[-] we are now using the old Wlan* API set to create the Ad-Hoc network, which works fine.
[+] Ad-Hoc network creation also works on Windows XP if you have SP3 installed.
[*] we don't need the user guide to create Ad-Hoc nets on Windows XP anymore, package got smaller.
[*] added some more "hresult to human-readable" error explanations.
[*] adhoclib updated to SDK 8.0;
[*] Create SSID Dialog added the selection of the interface to create on, and a password verification input box.
[+] Now it prompts for adhoc net parameters when creating it, private networks are created easier.
[+] Control App will now warn at start if driver needs update.
[-] do not tell that driver needs update when installing the first time.
[-] route collector didn't work in some cases
[+] Daihinia now comes with signed code
[!] added support for x64 systems
[+] new versions are checked more periodically, not only at control app start.
[*] scheduled version checker now properly informs of new versions.
[*] doesn't open the start menu folder after installation.
[*] show shield icon on buttons with admin tasks
[-] do not tell negative "days left", say "expired"
[!] automatic setup feature added.
[+] we now process duplicate routes and choose the optimal one.
[*] it now notices the user when it finished installing/removing the driver amd creating the ad-hoc network profile.
[*] it now disables buttons when processing, to avoid doubleclicking.
[*] explanations in Control App made more explicit.
minor improvements and the new logo.
[*] explanation text about creating the ad-hoc net made more meaningful
[-] Control App might silently quit on Windows 2003, doing nothing
[*] trial period extended to 30 days
[-] it might have not set next hop destination correctly when forwarding
[*] registered user names can be unicode
[!] now the driver is based on the latest WDK sources and is fully compatible with Windows 7
[-] now we correctly report the MTU size to protocols above us
[*] driver now turns on with any SSID prefixed "Daihinia"
Predicted future versions and notices:
The doDownload.com constantly monitors the update of all programs, including information from the Daihinia 1.7.10 changelog file, however sometimes it can happen that data are not complete or are outdated.We assume that author continue's to develop 1.8.0 version with further advanced features, and soon you will be informed. Equally important 2.0.0 upgrades of the program we will continue to monitor. Full Daihinia description has been compared with the overall software database and our algorithm has found the following applications (are showed below).
