had no problems with the netgear fa411. . . think it's a g card, but i  
may be wrong.  I've worked with a whole number of other cards with  
FBSD, but can't remember particularly model numbers at this point. . .

Lots of cards are fine at this point. . .including 32-bit CardBus. . .

I'd suggest find a model you like at the price you like, and check the  
hardware compatibility list.
