None that I've found (not that I looked very far) works out of the box. I got a dLink dwa-125 version 2 (the box says "Wireless N 150 USB adapter") working (so far, just checked basic functionality: Can connect via WPA/WPA2, got some simple webpages; no smoke/crash) with Ralink's driver today after fixing a lot of 64-bit (and other) issues, the patches are on their way to Ralink. It seems to me that it should work with their driver without patches on (not too new, there were changes in USB function naming) 32-bit Linux, but I can't test that.

Best if the OEM states linux support if not then see ndiswrapper for help.
