When I bought one about 4 years ago - I got a D-Link DWL650 PCI card
for my laptop because it had an external aerial port and worked with
Linux (which was all the 7 year old laptop could handle). I had to
get Harvey Norman to import one - I think it was about $100 ;) Still
going strong, still feeding the good wifi to the right places - eg
I'm sure there's a better variety of them around these days.
