Sigh. My experience with wifi is that it is not stable enough for that.
Both AP's I have tried Linksys ACM3200 or Netgear WNDR3800 I still see random drop outs.
Not sure if these are device resets (ie workarounds) or other issues.

These happen independent of firmware (vendor, OpenWRT, or LEDE).
So my suspicion is the that Wifi hardware is shite and that firmware is trying
to workaround and mask the problem.
