I have a netgear wg511v2 pcmcia card. as James mentioned, it works fine with
ndiswrapper, but if you try to put your machine in standby, or walk out of
range of your network, you'll have to restart the machine - trying to restart
the network will cause the machine to freeze.
physically, it's a much safer bet than a USB dongle. but, after a year or two
of use, the card is a bit loose around the sticky-outy bit, so some care is
