I just bought a NetGear MA401 802.11b PCCard from just
because it was too cheap to resist ($50+postage after rebate until
12/31/01!). It is recognized in NetBSD-current as wi0, and works just
fine to a Cisco Aironet Access Point.

This card *claims* to do 128bit WEP, but I haven't tried, and won't
bother since I don't trust WEP anyway.

As a bonus, it doesn't lock my machine up when I unplug it, as happens
with my Aironet card and the an driver.

Now I don't have to constantly swap my two Aironet cards between our
three laptops ;-)
