Wireless PC Card Suggestions

Unfortunately, due to the layout of my new apartment I'm going to have to run my desktop PC with a wireless card instead of a wired connection.

Googling turns up a lot of out-of-date information on hardware compatibility for Linux and PC wireless cards. Could anyone provide a suggestion or two for known-good, 2.6-kernel compatible PC wireless cards?

Thanks in advance!

I've been using a Gigabyte GN-WP01GS under Arch for the last year and haven't had any issues.
