I think this looks like a promising way to do this, since my 2100s are
both WiFi-ready. Should be easy enough to replace Hiroshis old
driver with the new, unlocked version. AirPort Extreme can be easily shut off
and switched on again?

the transfer speeds we're talking here? I have a Pico

I hate the idea.

As a non-coder I don't know the first thing about doing this. Anybody in
here tempted to give it a go?

Thank you very much for your input, Morgan!
