Connecting to the Internet During a Zombie Apocalypse?
Ok so I'm writing novel and I could use a little help from someone who knows something about networks. As the title suggests, the novel is set during a zombie Apocalypse, and the main character is a computer guy. Most major cities have been over run with zombies. There are three or four safe cities in America and between those a number of outposts (mostly converted malls, or scyscrapers kept secure) which are used as trading hubs.
So the computer guy is hired at an outpost to get them connected to the internet again. The trouble is I myself am a next gen computer guy who's been spoiled by automation and simple interfaces when it comes to things like connecting to the internet. I've got some learning to do before I can come up with hurdles to over come to get the internet going, and the ways he would do it. Any help from you guys would be appreciated.
So what are some interesting problems/solutions for connecting to the internet in a Zombie ravaged wasteland?
