Not too sure. I've been experimenting with wifi hardware and Ubuntu recently. Avoid Broadcom. D-link seems to be good though. The airpro 360 or whatever it is plug & played perfectly. (this was pcmcia though).

I have a nice 802.11g one by Hawking that uses the zd1211 chip. That driver is included with the kernel since around 2.6.17.
