I use a Netgear MA701 Compact Flash WLAN card (which has a standard 11
Mbit/s Prism chipset) on my z50, however not in the CF slot, but in the
PCMCIA slot with a CF/PCMCIA adaptor since the OS is running from a CF
card. Since CF and PCMCIA are electrically the same and the NetBSD
driver architecture abstracts chipset support from hardware interface
support, I optimistically guess that the card should also work in the CF
slot, but can't verify that...
