you could have a look at the orinoco cards. (which kernel are you using? 2.4.x 
or 2.6.x?)

I've used the 802.11b (only) card with kismet and airsnort but now my ipw2200 
supports this also and there is no need for this card anymore.
I think they have built the driver into the 2.6.x branch now and it should be 
quite stable so far.

There might be better solutions tough.
Just my 2 cents.
