Which WiFi (PCMCIA or USB) card should I buy for SuSE 9.0?

Okay. I have a Belkin wi-fi card.

It doesn't work in Linux. I know this, and know there's nothing I can do to change it.

What 802.11b or 802.11g cards are out there that sell for a reasonable price that will WORK with SUSE Linux?

I'm looking at the USB Netgear wifi card. If that works, I'd go with it.

If possible I'd like as *little* need for setup as possible.

Peruse the Wireless forum, there is a lot of commentary there. Also, the hcl list link from the front page of linxquestions has a good listing of cards.

Is it just certain Belkin cards that do not work? I have a Belkin F5D6020 that works quite nice.
