I would suggest, if possible, that you get them to buy new hardware and set up a replacement in parallel. Otherwise, I hope you are good at network administration. I have tried long enough to get a multiple-AP network going with multiple openwrt devices, and I found it to be a terribly long and painful process involving far too much fiddling with DHCP. I'll be the first to say that my network admin experience is suboptimal, but there is still a lot of complexity and ways for that to completely fail.
