have a look at the HCL here. you'll find a bunch there.

i've a netgear 511t pccard myself. works fine with the madwifi drivers (atheros chips).

AFAIK there are integrated intel wifi-cards that work well: ipw2100 & ipw2200 source is available.

there is a sourceforge project for some cards.

sl ritch.
