OLSR is your friend and Savior! Can I hear an amen!?

"Optimized Link State Routing protocol. OLSR is a routing protocol for 
mobile ad-hoc networks. The protocol is pro-active, table driven and 
utilizes a technique called multipoint relaying for message flooding."

OLSRd is a daemon to do adhoc networking which scales up to 600 nodes.
