Want suggestions for 802.11n wireless card for 64-bit Slackware 14.

My old Linksys 802.11g card has always been a bother to configure and after upgrading to Slackware 14.0 it is being difficult again.

Rather than continue to fight with this old card I am shopping for a good PCI wireless N card (desktop computer) that will work with Slackware 14 out of the box. How about some suggestions?

Thank you. I thought I remembered having good luck with some other Atheros card but I've been dragging that old Linksys from machine to machine for so long I didn't want to trust those old memories.
