RE: replacing the wndr3800...
Lately I've been thinking about a different model, switching to one of 
these newer multi core devices to act as a central router running 
SQM/etc and _no_radios_ and then deploying lightweight ath9k APs around 
the building. Maybe something like ubiquiti unifi AP (non-AC) running LEDE?
Any other good and cheap ath9k AP options?
(hard to compete with the wndr3800 now costing $25 shipped, but an AP 
might have better antennas and PoE)

If/when ath10k catches up then just switch the APs out.
