The Netgear WG511 uses a prism54 chip. Should work (once you get the
binary firmware) as the driver is in the kernel. Other alternatives
would include cards that have the Atheros chipset or Ralink RT2500
chipset. I'm not so sure with Intel's wifi chips (haven't tried them
at all) though the drivers are also in the latest linux kernel.
