Wish I knew, try used...
I've tried the Internet for reports of working wireless adapter cards and didn't find any that I could buy new in my market in Denmark; I've been looking at cards sold used. I then google assiduously for problems and crisis reports, something I didn't do enough of the last time. Then I concentrated on lists of well supported cards, as both of these are.
The problem is that the freeze as freeze doesn't figure dominantly in the Internet search results, only in the behavior of the card in hand. I also suspect that the best development resources have left the problem and gone on to better things, leaving this without a solution.
For my part, I wanted a card with an antenna since the wireless signal has to be picked up after going through a few walls and a gas stove. Life in the big city.
