    I have a Linux box I'd like to connect to my wireless network. What's the best PCI card for the job? I want the one that has the best Linux support. I also want one that allows me to use WPA2 under Linux. Any suggestions?

    I have a Ralink RT2500 (I think). Tis a very good card, works under Ubtuntu out of the box, and even has OSX drivers
