The best way I know to determine what hardware you have [for all PCI
devices] is to search Hobbes for: pci104vka
The last time I looked this would do it:

After downloading and expanding the package, get the current device
list from:
and store it in place of the one that comes with the package.

     PCI.EXE > YourTPadDevs.Txt
to get the list of your devices into a text file.

Use your favorite editor to do a find on the word 'Wireless'.

In my case, on a T60, the first three lines of the entry shows:
> Bus 3 (PCI Express), Device Number 0, Device Function 0
> Vendor 8086h Intel Corporation
> Device 4227h PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

So, my device is (8086:4227), taken from Vendor:Device.

Good luck...
