In regards to installing pkgin, the variable you need to set is PKG_PATH. It is the URL/path to the binary NetBSD package repository you wish to use. Globally, there are at least 8 http/ftp servers. There are some guidlines on setting up pkgin on NetBSD that come up readily on an Internet Search. Use search terms: NetBSD pkgin. pkgin configuration is specified in /usr/pkg/etc/pkgin which should set a default that is linked to the current -stable branch.

I currently have 2 old PC's running NetBSD 7.0.2 patch with WPA2 encrypted pci wireless cards. It is dependent on your hardware - some wireless chips work better than others.

I use the NetBSD wiki guidelines to set up although I have to manually run dhclient the first time.
