No need to panic...

My Extreme works great, interfaced between a Cable adapter & an 8 port Switch, besides it's WiFi function.. I have an Express as an extension to the more distant end of the house...
And I have backups, at least 2 Extremes, maybe a couple Exress's.. All either given to my by frustrated users, or flea market finds, maybe $10 invested. All most needed was a firmware update, resetting, and away they went.. Then back in the box.

I don't see a need to go all Meshy, at least in my case I hardwired all the vital devices from the switch or if close anther Extreme port.. WiFi is for our or our guests use and so no real load on it as any streaming goes via the CAT5's..

Down the line, many options... But I don't envision any further need, really..
