Take a look at thread "Support of USB/WiFi D-Link DWL-G122 802.11g on NetBSD" 
from this April:

My current conclusion are:
* Yes, there are portable drivers from both OpenBSD/FreeBSD and 3d party code.
* Some way they even work for me :) At least i can force two cards to detect 
each other.
* After all with drivers ported by me i cannot ping remote host due to some 
problems in ARP code.

Technically ATM i'v stopped my work on DWL due to lack of time :( Maybe in the 
future i'll try to finish it or someone with good experience in wifi/ip stack 
will take a look at this problem.
