Hi Kees,

I have friend that's offering to loan a bunch of gear left over from a
warehouse tear-down that his work performed last year.  The equipment
was originally installed in 2009, so probably no fancy 802.11n/HT.

 * Several Motorola WS5100 controllers.
 * Couple dozen (or more) AP-300 access points.
 * Bunch of Cisco Catalyst 2960s and some 3560s (non-GigE) but they all
   have at least two 1gbps ports.

The gear is in Tualatin, perhaps I could go pick up a controller and an
AP and bring it to Lucky Labs next Tuesday so we can observe whether
it's too enterprisey.
