This project has not been active since 2013. If you are interested, talk to nomasterx.

Sub-Etha builds hackcenters on camps, provides network infrastructure, internet uplink and public terminals. We teach and share the idea of free, unhindered communication over the internet and beyond.

First bunch of hardware

Mobile HackcenterEdit

The mobile hackcenter is the center of our activity. It is built from donated hardware and travels around, appearing on camps and other temporary gatherings.

Main componentsEdit

  • Star (center of network, internet uplink)
  • Planet (network distribution, core switches)
  • Moon (public terminals)
  • Asteroid (desktop switches, Freifunk nodes)

A self-contained flight case with rack-mounted components and upgrades like UPS, power distribution, etc. is suffixed with “Box” (i.e. StarBox).


We provide a helpdesk at the hackcenter, care about the network and organize workshops.


  • linux desktop installation on an encrypted filesystem
