Thanks for the tip. I did go buy this card and built the madwifi package and 
it seems to work quite well. Looking back I think the 3com card was also 
working, I just didn't know how to configure debian to get it up and running. 
I have an open unencrypted linkup to the ap right now so I need to set it up 
with a bit more security. Can you give me any pointers on how to set that up? 
Where do I put that config? Does it go under ath0 in /etc/network/interfaces?

I need to get straight in my head how to configure wireless in debian. I seem 
to have it working now, but I'm not sure if I can do it again.. ;)
