PCMCIA WiFi Card Suggestion?

Can anyone recommend a PCMCIA 802.11b/g card that works well with Fedora?

    I use the NETGEAR WG511T card. Works out of the box, but it’s improved if you install the madwifi drivers from livna.

    Until the ath5k driver was introduced in Fedora, I used an ASUS SpaceLink WL-107g card, which uses the rt2500 chipset from Ralink. In Fedora, this card worked extremely well for me. The drivers are completely free software, and it requires no use of proprietary firmware, in case that is a priority for you.Another card I know would work really well is the D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DWL-G650. This one uses an Atheros chipset, and the advantage of this one, is that all revisions of it is supported. Although that there also exists a DWL-G650+ which is NOT supported, the non-plus version is what I’m referring to. This card might be supported by the ath5k driver, although if not, you’ll have to use the madwifi driver if you’re gonna go for this D-Link card.
