Which notebook/mini-pci WiFi doesn't suck (on Intrepid)?

I recently obtained an MSI Wind netbook. Fine machine, except for the
Ralink WiFi. Totally unusable on Windows (didn't test on Ubuntu), and I
want to dual-boot.
Next stop was to crack the machine open and pop in an Intel 3945ABG card
in. Couldn't get "A" to work at all (my password/passkey wouldn't work).
"G" works, but is horrendously slow. I could try ndiswrapper, but that
seems more work than putting in a new card.
Can anyone recommend a newish mini-pci card that might work well? If you
have a recent notebook with WiFi that works well out of the box, I'd
love to know what WiFi chipset it uses.
My next step is to try a Dell 1490, which uses the b43 Broadcom
driver... I don't think I'll have access to "A" on that card, but a good
working "G" will suffice.
Any recommendations greatly appreciated. Tnx.
