This paper describes the planned tests and preliminary results obtained in the first field tests using OLPC’s XO laptop. The XO laptop mesh network is being evaluated to test its suitability to work in dense environments, where many laptops will be present and competing for the same gateway, and in sparse environments, where connectivity between pairs of laptops will be of foremount importance to maintain a path between the school and each laptop.
