It seems to me the majority of the time you just end up getting a PCI -> PCMCIA adapter. You can buy the adapter and a PCMCIA card in a package together, or you can get an adapter and pick your card. I recently got the SMC EliteConnect jobbie, 200mW, I got it for like 40 bucks off ebay. ~ It's only 802.11b, but the signal strength rocks.
