I would like to buy a wireless card or usb adapter in order to be able to connect to my home wireless network from my desktop computer.

I heard that some cards are pain in Ubuntu, because of drivers.

Can you recommend some usb wireless adapters that can work in Ubuntu?

Thanks in advance.

I use this adapter for all my operating systems (Ubuntu, Windows 7 64-bit, Mac OSX) and it never failed me EVEN ONCE!
