PCI Wireless card that doesnt' need kernel recompile (ndiswrapper==no)

I've been trying to get a wireless G card working which seems to be an exercise in frustration. The cards that seem to be simple for others to setup require NDISWRAPPER to load up the windows drivers. The problem is I use clarkconnect 3 which is a heavily modded FC3 distro and doesn't have the proper size stacks which seems to cause kernel panics in the presence of ndiswrapper. Recompiling is not a good idea for me since it results in an unusable system.

Are there any wireless G cards that don't require a kernel recompile or ndiswrapper? Madwifi is okay but it doesn't seem to play ball when it came to routing last time around.

Given your specific requirements, I suggest a wireless Ethernet adapter.
