NetBSD reports 

wm0 at pci0 dev 25 function 0: Intel i82801H (M_AMT) LAN Controller, rev. 3
wm0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 20 (irq 11)
wm0: PCI-Express bus
wm0: FLASH
wm0: Ethernet address 00:16:d3:XX:XX:XX

and it DOES work.

My X61 has originally "Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 4965AGN Mini-PCI Adapter" and 
it is not supported by NetBSD at all.

I also purchase Lenovo 40Y7028 wireless adapter which has device ID 0x1014
of Atheros Communications.  It is recognized as ath but DOES NOT work.

In dmesg, it was reported as follows.

ath0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0
ath0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 17 (irq 11)
ath0: 11a rates: 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
ath0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
ath0: 11g rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
ath0: mac 10.3 phy 6.1 radio 10.2

Also, ifconfig reports correct MAC address and wiconfig also repots correct
card infomation.

But when execute "ifconfig ath0 up",  kernel reports 

ath0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel 8 (2447 MHz, flags 0x3e0 hal flags 0x140)

and it transmit no packet.

An addtion :-)

It has "Intel 82965PM Integrated Graphics Device" and it is supported 
by Xorg but not native X server.

Its audio device is "Intel 82801H High Definition Audio Controller" and 
recognized as azalia. It works with internal speaker but when plug in
headphones, no sound comes from the headphones.

Hope this helps.
