Rumor has it you cannot use any of the existing software to put the
longer encryption key into a gold card, should you replace the one
in the RG-1000 with one.

The apple airport works fine.

Also, the RG-1000 picks a rather annoying network name, and this
cannot be changed so I was told.  This means you're screwed if you
want to put two together and roam 'tween them.
