Wireless Card - recommendations?

I need to get a wireless Ethernet card for my Linux IBM T30 laptop running Mandriva SE 2005.

I am looking for Mandriva to just detect it and have it work while also being compatible with the IBM T30 ... fat chance I know, but I am looking darn it!

Does anyone have any recommendations?

The Linksys WPC 11 ver. 3 is a PRISM I card (uses the orinico_cs driver) and is automatically detected and works on every Linux/BSD I've used it on(a lot, including MDK)

The ver. 4 is what is around now though, which is a totally different chipset that is not recognized. You can usually find the ver. 3 cards on Ebay and such.. but this a great card, well made, and relatively inexpensive.

I have a Linksys WPC11 v. 3 also, it's a great card. I also have a Netgear MA111, which is a USB wireless, which works very well with the linux-wlan-ng drivers.
