I'm fairly happy with my current ra2500-based card, also called "the cheapest
cardbus card my local supplier had in stock". So far, it's been working
great, and it costed me 22.50 Euro.
Personally, I quite like my laptop to be wireless; the only times I still
connect it using the built-in wired ethernet is when I really need that extra
bit of bandwidth. And, ofcourse, while installing things; the chance that
some random bootdisk will support an fxp(4) card is considerably higher
than the chance it'll support ral(4) - NetBSD-3 only does it using a
custom backport of the driver..
