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 ( 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.
