[Make-wifi-fast] Wiring up a wireless testbed

What this setup also removes is random noise, which is good for
repeatability, but bad for real-life testing. My experiences doing similar
are that there isn’t much of a grey area between a “great”
throughput/packet error rate and “nothing works”.

It also removes the real-world crosstalk between the antennas.

So good for some things, especially automated tests, but it’s not a
replacement for real field tests in the presence of random noise.
