well, that depends mostly on what card/chipset you'll use (and otherwise

I've once ported Linux's PCMCIA core modules along with the orinoco
driver.  That one doesn't cause much trouble since it doesn't need any
firmware or such alike. 

Other drivers might be ported but that involves quite some work since
the drivers (and the wireless api) included in GNU Mach are ripped from
Linux 2.2 (and suitable pcmcia-cs bits).

USB devices currently aren't supported at all.


PS: concerning the Orinoco, WEP works, WPA does not.
