I need a PCI wireless adapter that works well with Ubuntu 12.04. I have looked around on the web but a lot of the information is out-of-date or confusing. Could someone point me to a wireless PCI adapter on Newegg or Amazon that they know works well with Ubuntu 12.04? I would really appreciate it.

I am looking for a wireless PCI now for my desktop. This is a great question. The site for "WirelessCardsSupported" below hasn't been updated since some time in 2011, and a lot of the cards on that page are no longer in production, having been replaced by newer versions. –  jeffery_the_wind May 5 '13 at 10:00

I went through several return/exchange cycles with both Amazon and Newegg, and finally found an adapter that works great on this site:
