I'm very happy with my D-link AirXpert DWL-AG650. It supports a,b and
g and there are native open source linux drivers from the Madwifi
project. Anything with the Atheros chipset is supported.

You have to compile the drivers yourself and you should be comfortable
with compiling your own kernel.

Some nice danish guy put up a page and some packages for building the
drivers as debian packages.
