I have used the Veritech pcmcia cards in a PCI cradle in Linux without a 
problem.  These cards are a little more expensive ($110) plus you also 
need a PCI cradle (another $70).

They are a local version of the Senao card which is a high powered 
wireless card (200 Milliwatt) with good receive sensitivity.  They use 
the Prism 2.5 chipset.

I have used them for longer range outdoor wireless and they work well.

I bought them from here:

But you can probably get them elsewhere.
