A wireless network apparatus comprises: a wireless transmitter and receiver operated according to at least one recognized wireless communications protocol; a data storage unit; and a programmed processor. The processor is programmed for establishing direct and indirect links with wireless network nodes, storing wireless connectivity data, transmitting wireless connectivity data to the linked nodes for storage, receiving connectivity data from the linked nodes for storage. The wireless network apparatus may function as a wireless network node apparatus, and wireless network terminus, and/or a wireless portal node. Wireless connectivity data, wireless network terminus data, and/or other data associated with the wireless network may be redundantly stored distributed among the wireless network nodes. The wireless network apparatus may be further adapted for enhancing network connectivity, capacity, security, reliability, and/or functionality of the wireless network.
