The MSM422 are dual band 2.4 & 5ghz Wireless N, so unless your looking for something running AP, than they ought to suffice in stand alone mode as a pretty much FOC option.

2.4 GHz, 5 GHz - Switchable

The max rate available then will be 72.2 Mbps, probably 65 Mbps without short guard interval, so very little benefit over the current 54 Mbps, though it's a more advanced AP and will use better signal processing and error recovery.
You are right it, it is indeed a generous offer and will give the OP a chance to immediately see the impact of switching to N, though 2x2 in 2.4 Ghz would be better, though his devices may not support it.
These will buy time and may even be enough to solve the problem, it's kind of you to offer.
Thanks for the generous offer steve,
We have gone down the Ruckus route and purchased two Ruckus Zoneflex 7962 Ap's, got a really good deal on them as they are being replaced with an updated model,
We have had them wired to a gigabit switch using cat 6 cable, fingers crossed for tomorrow when the kids start using them for real...
Could not have done it with out everyone's help especially Net ctrl and Neil mac ann all the others.
