Usually it's wiser to get somewhat older hardware, as NetBSD isn't the
kind of OS to have the latest and greatest hardware support. Try with a
CURRENT snapshot, and if it doesn't work, maybe it's all about a PCI id
that has to be added somewhere. Usually Intel wi-fi cards tend to be
well supported.
