I have recently found out about ralink.  They seem to actually have
linux open source drivers for their wireless chips.

A list of cards using there chips is here: http://ralink.rapla.net/

I haven't used one myself, but I have seen a few people say it worked
great for them.

Might be worth a shot, given open source drivers is the best way to get
stuff to continue working in the future.
