Any suggestions on a good PCMCIA wireless card to get for my Ubuntu install?

I was wondering if anyone could offer me advice on what some good PCMCIA wireless cards are that I can use get to connect to my WGR614 v6 54Mbps Wireless Router? I would like something that is guaranteed to work directly with my Ubuntu Feisty Fawn install so that I don't have to screw around with using ndiswrapper.

Its been a while since I've looked at any wireless cards but are there any nowadays that consume less power? That would be a big plus. Also, years ago when I took a Network Security course I remember them talking about some cards that had extra functionality when the appropriate hacks where applied. If I remember correctly they where able to spawn there own access point using the card itself. Are there any cards that still do this? I would like this feature to play and experiment with, I don't any intention of doing anything illegal with it.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
