quick question - wireless cards

If I were to go out to town tomorrow in the UK and buy a wireless G card, which one is most likely to have me connected to our homes wireless router by the end of Tomorrow?

i.e. seeing as the boxes probably wont tell me what chipset is in them, what's the name of one that is likely to work very simply, and very easily, with minimum of effort?

(have a 64-bit gentoo install with kernel 2.6.12)

Assuming a PCI card:

Atheros chipset, supported by the MadWiFi driver. Check the HCL for more options.
