Question purchasing 802.11b PCI card

Ok, for Christmas my parents thought they'd be nice and get me a wireless router and a PCI card so I could stick a computer in the bedroom of my apartment. Wonderful, except the card they bought me was a Linksys WMP11 v2.7, so I ran into the whole Broadcom problem (if there are any developments on that front let me know!).

Anyway, I'm finally setting this deal up since I've had a bit of free time (and due to the previous lack of free time a little extra cash). I'm looking to go ahead and buy a new 802.11b PCI card, but I don't want to run into the same situation I did before. I'd like to get a Prism based card that doesn't have a variant based on a Broadcom or some other unsupported chipset. ie I want to be able to look at the box or the product name and know I'm good to go. Also if you have had good/bad/other experiences with it, feel free to elaborate.


Wanted to remove this and move it to the Linux - Hardware forum, but could not. Said I didn't have permission to do it.
