That is unfortunate (from all angles).  :o  :(

I killed off lines 2 and 4. Line 3 was superb (3.1 Mbps downstream sync rate) until last weekend when it developed HCD. Iíve turned the downstream SNRM target up from 3 dB to 9 dB and that combined with the PhyR makes it very usable still, so since AA will no longer give me any support line 3 will have to just stay as it is. Even if the downstream were to drop to zero, I would still need its unaffected upstream contribution, so it will only get killed off if it starts producing errors that canít be corrected by the very highest available downstream target SNRM plus PhyR so that it affects the whole bonding.

Hope you feel up to it soon @Weaver.

If you want something simple to replace your Zyxel WAP units, I'm currently trying to resurrect the Cisco Meraki MR18 over on the Openwrt forums.

The MR18 is a freebie, Meraki sent out to people who watched a webinar, and then after a year tried to hit people with licensing.
Anyway, it's possible to get Openwrt on the unit, and as it's a Triple radio unit, 128mb flash, 128mb memory, gigabit normal 802.3af PoE in a decent shell, with WPA3 support after Openwrt installed, it's pretty future proof.

They go for less than £10 each on eBay.
