I openly question your need or the desirability for 3 802.11 adapters.  It can 
be made to work, but you’re going to have some intermod.

you can probably get APU in low-volume, but quantity is very constrained these 
days (it’s been true all year).

We do have the RCC-VE and RCC-DFF units available.
