Then you probably want to look into the NetGear WG511. It's based on
the prism54 chipset, for which GPL (or something similar) drivers are
available on prism54.org. I would note that this driver is not
currently bundled with the mainstream distributions yet, afaik, so you
have to install it manually. It should be soon though. :)
It gives good performance (and for new drivers stability isn't too bad),
and things like iwlist scanning and such actually work, whereas with
orinoco a lot of those were'nt implemented.
You can find them at future shop.
Hope that helps,
