The Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B (aka the "Centrino WLAN") works fine
here on a T40 with Bill Paul's NDISulator:

ndis0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter> mem
       0xc0200000-0xc0200fff irq 6 at device 2.0 on pci2

You need a very recent -CURRENT, though, the NDISulator is not in

I've listed the steps to get it working on my T40 page:
