But like I mentioned, it would be possible to build a version with
driver_wired included..

If you are looking for a wireless card for Windows, I don't see much
point in trying to find a Prism2/2.5/3 card unless you are going to use
that card on Linux, too. As far as wpa_supplicant for Windows is
concerned, it does not matter which card you are using as long as you
have a working driver for it with WPA support.
