Al >>> Thanks for the quick reply.  The reason I asked for the name and 
model of a card someone has seen working out of the box with WPA and 
available in a shop now is that the information in all the 'good places 
to look' is often wildly out of date, wrong, or very confusing.

For example, linuxemporium recommends Edimax.  I bought one some time 
ago, but it didn't work 'out of the box' with Feisty.  It doesn't work 
'out of the box' with Gutsy live CD.  So I'm sceptical of anything that 
doesn't come with an 'I've actually seen this working' recommendation.

Sorry to seem so fussy, but - like many here, I guess - I've spent hours 
- no, days - researching wifi kit with much frustration.  :-(
