Expresscard linux support?

I just bough a new dell notebook but it doesn't support pcmcia just the new expresscard slot cards. It has a internal wifi card but I want to able to upgrade it to a better one. I want to know is there is a wifi expresscard that works with linux? I searh it in google and read that the best solution is to get a WLAN USB, if so what is a good WLAN USB that runs in linux natively no ndiswrapper, it would great if I could put an external antenna to it. Thanks a million!!!!

Not sure of the working cards under expresscard but a quick search on google pointed me to this links. Search google for more.

For USB wireless I know certain Linksys WUSB54G "Wireless G" adapter with the Ralink chipset. Check this link for the ralink drivers plus many other choices.
Also D-Link DWL-122 rev.C1 uses the ralink chipset as well.

Find the ones you can get locally and search the HCL section here for them. Located at top or right. Lots of info on them there.

Also search here for them. There is lots of info here as well on google.

No idea on external antenna. Just have to search for them and see if they use something you are after.
