You should probably look for cards that use the Atheros chipsets.  If
you have the MadWiFi driver installed, any of these should simply work
"out of the box".

The safest way to be sure though is to go to your supplier or computer
store, make a note of the EXACT model numbers of the PCMCIA cards they
have available, and then check them against the list of devices here:

An example of a PCMCIA card that should work fine is the Netgear WG511T.
