Based upoin a similar question I posted to this list about a month ago I purchased an Edimax PCI wireless for my kid's workstation & later got the USB dongle ( EW-7318USg) for my craptop.
It Just Works(tm)

The *easiest* wireless I've ever done & they are a linux-friendly company.

I've not tried it but the EW-7108PCg cardbus shows the same supported features
