As I have too much trouble with my internal wireless chipset under linux and I want maximum speed for my 802.11n access point I would like to have an ExpressCard-based wireless card that is fully supported under linux. Preferably native, not ndiswrapper-based.

What's the best/best supported card out there? General googling did not give me the answers I wanted.

I have thought of USB solutions, but I think they stick out too much compared to an expresscard solution. – Roalt Nov 27 '09 at 18:59

It turned out that I could replace my internal (atheros) miniPCI by a different one.

I bought the Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300, MiniPCIe and it works perfectly.
