[support-gang] [UKids] "XO-1 classrooms" don't reliably connect to many/most Wifi AP's

I completely agree that we have evidence that some routers (and android 
hotspots) just work and that if you can figure out how to make this reliable 
and even how to add this capability to other routers that currently fail 
that would be the best solution.

However, as a parallel track we should try to get a practical solution in 
the near term that may involve disabling mesh.

I don't know that yet, sorry.

While the evidence so far does not incriminate the routers, there are
some routers that have worked fine, and the reason they work fine is
not obvious ... so I can't dismiss the possibility that a router might
be modified.
