Yeah, most people ignore ZH.  UBNT marketing hyped it up quite a bit,
and for a residential deployment it can work OK, but if you have any
kind of background in wireless you'll understand that it goes out the
window for a non-trivial deployment due to the requirement of all APs
sharing a channel.

It's too bad they don't support 802.11r (fast roaming) and 802.11k
(radio resource management).
