Recommended Linux Wireless Card


Can anyone recommend a good wireless card for Linux. I have a WG511, but apparently you not only need the driver, but the firware update which is no longer available. I will need to get a card that will work out of the box I guess.
Thanks,
Steve

Do you want PCMCIA, USB or PCI?

I would like PCMCIA. They, from what I heard, are better.
Thanks,
Steve

I know that CNet cards have good support in Linux. I use the 811-card, and I'm having no trouble with it at all. It has the Ralink rt2400 chipset, and you might find other brands with the same chipset if CNet is hard to get for you.
