I can't see clearly what drivers, if any, might work in NetBSD, checking the
above link, but I can narrow down the candidates to try. Maybe rtw?
I could boot NetBSD with USB wireless adapter attached and view the dmesg, see
what is "not configured".
I could also boot Linux on the System Rescue CD (http://sysresccd.org/) and
read the resulting dmesg, even see if it sets up.
And then I might be able to fall back on ndiswrapper if no native drivers work.
It might be interesting to see how to setup with ndiswrapper.
