Well I had the same problem figuring out whether the card I was buying
really had a prism 2 or 2.5 chipset. Best thing would be to give the sales
people a call. But as far as I know linksys wpc11 v3 is prism 2 - unless
they have changed it now. Did you have a look at the Netgate cards? Their
website tells that they are prism 2.5 chipset and with external antenna
support - although I haven't tried them. The sparklan WL-360F PCI cards are
also prism 2.5 (I have a couple of them). <>

I recently bought a linksys wpc11 (version 3) pcmcia card - it has prism 2
chipset and works fine with hostap driver. But maybe they have switched over
to broadcom.
Also note that the D-Link DWL-650+  has broadband chipset.
