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.



Were you able to compile the .debs?  I could not.  It just ran and ran
untill it caused my box to run out of memory.  Using Sid here.  I did
get it to work buy getting the cvs and make, make install.

P. S.  Sorry Alex for sending this first to you directly, my mistake.
