I'm terribly sorry about your disconnected equipment. But we were in a
hurry to get the WiFi up and running. As I stated before, the reason this
started was due to the network NOT WORKING. If something isn't broken, it
shouldn't be fixed.

Does it ever occur to you that some people might have legitimate reasons
for doing something? Accidents do happen, and equipment malfunctions all
the time. In any case, Networking is a nightmare.

And my idea isn't exactly "gutting" the network. All it really is, is
adding a Linux box as a master router. Then routing traffic through it.
Simply installing some new pieces of equipment, then routing the existing
traffic over to it.
