Question Looking for a 802.11n usb or pcmcia wireless adapter

Hello everyone,

I've already spent 2 or 3 hours on google and a lot of other pages trying to find a wireless N adapter that is out-of-the-box compatible with mainstream linux distros (or at least with some *minor* hacking) but with no *clear* result... The only relative topic I've found here is this one: which mentions the Belkin N1 in combination with MadWifi or NDISWrapper.

I'm currently using ubuntu 9.04 (so I guess this means the version of the kernel is 2.6.28) and in an ideal world I would like to buy a pcmcia card with n support that I will plug-in to the socket and have the wireless working right away. In the real world a usb would also do and also I could spend 30m-1h setting it up as long as it's stable afterwards...

Do you have anything to suggest? I would be more than thankful if someone could give me a model number that he knows it works

This list is for USB only. It covers all (type not vendor) 802.11abgn.
You can select from 'wlan type' column and corresponding 'works with Linux' columns. Get the green ones.
