I know of no current just plug and go wifi cards. Most require one of the many modules to be built to work with the kernel source. It is not difficult to do. Many post on that here depending on what you use. The few I know that are just plug and go is a Linksys WPC11 version 2, Wavelan silver or gold cards. Both use orinoco_cs module. They can be found mostly on Ebay.
