I've got Intel 2200BG with my Asus M3700Np notebook. Today installed
it under FreeBSD with NDIS. Used drivers from Intel installation CD,
sorry, at the moment can't provide any details. I have no problems
with it:
kldload if_ndis
ifconfig ndis0 ssid xxxx wepmode on wepkey 0xxxxxx
dhclient ndis0

and here it works! 

I've got only one small problem - if_ndis doesn't appear when loaded
through /boot/loader.conf, only when loaded through kldload later.
(Doesn't seem to be related to /compat/ndis, because firmware is
integrated in the .SYS file, which goes directly to if_ndis.ko).
