Best PCMCIA Wifi card?

Well I've got a integrated Broadcom BCM94306 (rev 3) in my laptop and it sucks, mostly for the reason that there is no linux driver for it. Damn FCC regulations... fsck'em. Ndiswrapper was futile...

Anyhow, I'm going to get a PCMCIA wifi card and I need suggestions. I understand that Orinoco is a good way to go, and that there are open-source drivers for it. Hehe I want the rfmon promiscious mode... =)

So, I need suggestions for a PCMCIA card that will work with the Wifi modules that can be compiled in the 2.6.9 kernel? (I'm just keeping it simple.)
