There is some PCMCIA support for Bluebottle. But there is no Driver for
a wireless PCMCIA card.

We currently have a project about writing a driver for a wireless USB
adapter (for Bb). If it succeeds, the driver will be in the end of year
release of Bluebottle. The planned USB Wireless support is for the ATMEL
The way we currently get wireless access, if really need, is by
connecting a base station to a supported NIC. Brute force but it worked ;-)
