I've got some D-Link cards, they're fairly reliable, non amazing range, and
they error in an odd manner when they don't have link (a couple of kernel
messages that I don't have handy at the moment..), I'm not sure what it's
supposed to look like.  They use the wi(4) driver.

The friend that I got them from ordered a large batch(50+) and has had one
or two die in the ~6 months that he's had them, so not too rough.  One death
was a bad firmware update, as I recall.

Good enough for an around-the-house card, anyways.
