Wireless lan pcmcia - hardware suggestion?

I lost my us robotics wireless pcmcia card, and need to buy a new one. My lost one was "only" supported via ndiswrapper / linuxant driverloader. Any suggestions for a brand fast, up to date wireless pcmcia card that is supported by genuine 2.6 kernels are welcome.

Use a Prism54 card - it's the only 802.11g chipset supported by the kernel. I use this 3Com one  - completely hassle-free.

im not sure if they exist outside of laptops based on centrino, but if you can get an intell ipw2200 chipset based wireless card, they work great with the pseudo official drivers from ipw2200.sf.net

At home, one of my childs crosses my way, prowdly showing his latest lego artwork: some "Star Wars (tm)" fighter, that made me happy. One of the parts he build in as a steering gear was my wireless card, that I had lost days ago. He complained this part hasn't matched very well with his lego stones, but he loved its technical layout, so he jammed it in. Rofl.

I guess I have to invite him for a pizza to get it back.
