Half heigh two antenna wifi card for laptop with good Linux compatibility?


Hi all,
I am looking for a new wifi card for my laptop. I am looking for the following characteristics:
-High quality - High signal
-Two antenna
-half height
-Full stable linux drivers. I am currently using ArchLinux 3.10.9-1

I had a rtl8723ae but reception was poor at best and the Linux drivers were too unstable to use. At the moment I am using a Intel Wifi Link 5200 which I took out of an old laptop. The reception is Ok and the drivers are stable.
I was wondering if you could recommend some good card.
Thanks for the help!

I'd think Intel is still one of the better choices if you want linux support and stable.
I've found too many cards don't fully tell the buyer that they include a half height option. Peek at newegg.com for some reviews that include linux in the term maybe.
