Wireless PCI Ethernet

hey dudes. curious if anyone can suggest a wireless pci card that will be supported on openBSD 3.5. I want to add wireless networking to my already established openBSD firewall machine, i hear that its possible to add in a wireless pci card to obtain this. So if you know of any pci cards that are supported, please tell me.

I have checked openBSD's supported hardware list, but almost all of the Wireless products it says openBSD supports is PCMCIA, and I need pci. so if you've tested this out, please tell me.

The man page lists which chipsets can be used as a host AP and some of the card models that each chip appears in.
