xubuntu usb wifi

just bought a computer off ebay, its an old battered pentium 2, just want it for surfing the net and msn, nothing fancy, ive installed xubuntu and it runs fine. next step is to get some wifi going on it.

can anyone recommend a usb wifi dongle that will just work out of the box when i plug it in? (maybe a little interaction etc..)

Finding a working USB wifi dongle seems to be quite difficult, pci cards seem to work better.
