Some of the internal airport cards are supported. Though they are not
pcmicia slot but neither USB.

Probably not what you meant,  but just to make sure.

An Airport card (_not_ extreme) 
wi0 at obio0 offset 0x30000 irq 57: 802.11 address 00:30:65:2c:62:8b 
wi0: using Lucent Embedded WaveLAN/IEEE
wi0: Lucent Firmware: Station (7.28.1)
wi0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 
runs pretty well here in an iBook. 

These things also exist on PCI-cards, but I've no idea how that works
out on NetBSD. Being more specific on the hardware you are intending to
use this might help.
