Hi Kees,

On the other end of the spectrum...  I have some misc. consumer gear I
can bring if it helps.  At least a couple 4-port wi-fi ap/routers (one
b/g, the other b/g/n; I think they both run dd-wrt or similar) and an
8-port GigE switch.

I'll set them aside in case we need them for something ad-hoc.
