It's might be easier and better to make a 'strange airport extreme' to mini-PCI adapter so you can use any cheap available mini PCI card. This saves you hassle with RF certifications, obsolete chips etc. It also lets people decide which chipset they want. It's probably easier to design as well as you don't have to bother with the RF part. Cheers, Peter (p2).
