Question Best notebook wireless card for Ubuntu 7.04

Hi guys.

I think my wireless card built in my Dell is finally pooping out. Can you guys recommend a notebook PCMCIA card? 54g and up. OR would it simply be easier to buy a usb adapter?

Take a look through this list that has current levels of support for different cards:

I have a Netgear card with Atheros chipset (you should look for supported chipsets, because brand names don't mean anything), and it works pretty well with madwifi.
