Good cheap pcmcia wireless card that supports monitor mode

Can anyone recommend one? I have been looking at a few with the Atheros chipset that seems pretty well supported.

I have been trialing my friends Dlink DWL-G650 but they are a little expensive to buy.

Thanks for your time

I've got a Cisco Aeronet A/B/G card that's based on the Atheros chipset and I love it! Linux support is quite good with the Madwifi drivers plus Cisco just makes solid networking hardware. The signal strength is amazing - many times better than my internal Centrino card. I haven't tried out any other card with the Atheros chipset, but I imagine they'd all be fairly similar. If you're looking for a good place to buy one, I know that I picked up my card brand new on eBay for under $40, including shipping.

Thanks for your reply. I cant seem to find anywhere in NZ that sells those cards cheap

What I really want is a card that supports 11g and airsnort and similar security tools.
