While removing the antennae may slightly impact the spread of Internet in the meetinghouse, it continues more than usable, (especially with WAPs installed).

Unplugging the WAPs isn't too difficult. For the 881W unplugging the antennas tends to remove the signal from the chapel (depending on location) which is where the majority of wireless users are located during conference. One can always cover the 881W too with a screen. This website has one approach that is cheap: ... wifiblock/

We have seen more than a few installed by paid contractors but it is rare. In the UK, its another story. BT has been contracted to install them. I don't know the specifics if they are also installing the internet service at the same time or not.
BT are doing the whole thing from what the FM told me. BT come and install the broadband and there broadband router, then a 881W is installed and they install the AP if more are needed. From my communications with one unit there installation was far from smooth.
