I am typing this over an ssh connection using an Actiontec 802.11b
card, model HWC01170-01, I got at the Dallas Fry's for $29.90.
It works with the Orinoco driver but does not have an external
antenna connector as the Orinoco cards do. It's flat enough to fit
two in two neighboring PCMCIA slots but I didn't get two so don't
know how well this would work interference-wise.
To make this card work, put this in /etc/pcmcia/actiontec.conf and
card "Actiontec HWC01170-01"
version "ACTIONTEC", "PRISM Wireless LAN PC Card", "0381", "RevA"
Actiontec is in Sunnyvale. I don't know if the Sunnyvale Fry's has
these cheap cards though.
