Master Mode Cards

I am wanting to buy a PCI wireless card for Slackware 10 to act as an Access Point. I was using a SMC2802W with the Prism54 driver. The problem is that this card isn't made in a working form anymore, and I have heard that the Prism54 chipset does not work well in Master mode.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a card that works well with Linux Master mode?

Thank you for any help.

Any Prism2 card, really. Especially the old Orinoco Gold.
