War waits for no router setup. Functioning internet takes time to set up, which is not a luxury a military on the move usually has, and it's definitely not an option when troops get ambushed. Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET), a system of communication without major infrastructure, provides a way around this. MANETs use nodes to wirelessly route new information between each other, as opposed to sending information through a central router and then having the information sent back on the same fixed channel. For decades the number of nodes (carried variously by troops and vehicles) has been capped at about 50.
DARPA wants to change that, and is looking for new ideas to increase the scale of MANETs. Citing 20 years of failure in adapting internet-based ideas task, DARPA is soliciting research paper abstracts that look elsewhere, and they're dreaming big. A small, 50 node network is useful, but with more nodes a much larger force could benefit from increased battlefield awareness on a tremendous scale, and could do so as events unfold, rather than waiting for information sent up to headquarters to be sent back down again. If the MANET is good enough and large enough, the military on the move could communicate fine, even if they left the router at home.
CLOSE THE INTERNET CONNECTION TO CHINA!
Yes open the minimum that is required for governments, banks and business.
Why leave an open do to China, when it is an absolute fact that are hacking and attacking the USA daily?
This suggestion will not close the hacking, but it will reduce it greatly and further identify bad guys China governmental departments and businesses; then we can be more politically responsive to manage to the problem further China hacking reduction.
The facts are there, now it time to make a decision

@ 12 You think America is innocent in all of this? Their is no such thing, just degrees a guilt. Stuxnet comes to mind.
no one is saying that the American government doesn't engage in cyber espionage. Both America and China do, and I don't blame them for it.
But the U.S. government does it [solely] for military threats. One is a military precaution. The other is economic theft. They don't focus on stealing technological advancements from Chinese companies.
Granted, that's mostly because there isn't much to steal. Kind of a one-way street.
If you can't understand the moral difference between damaging centrifuges in an unstable country that constantly says things like "Israel is a one-bomb state", and stealing technical information and research from NASA, DARPA, Boeing, Samsung, etc. Then your principles need some reviewing. Frankly it's annoying to listen to oikophobes rant.
sorry took me a minute i had to look up Oikophobia, i guess i'm ignorant too. i do find it funny that you came to this conclusion from my comment. however i do think that America has set a president and as you have said their isn't much for us to steal not that we wouldn't. that said i agree with everything you said except for the "[solely]" part and that last bit.
It is precedent, "America has set a president?" I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say you are in high school or perhaps you had a brain fart (happens from time to time). However, it seriously damages your arguments if you cannot use the properly spelled word to convey a meaning.
Regardless, China has been stealing technology from the United States for a long time, and I agree with brian144 that it needs to stop.
