You may want to look here for a list of a few.  and if you keep up
with -STABLE (which is to say are upgrading to 5.3) you will be able
to find a similar list provided for it.  I cannot really speak for the
"best" brand, but I used the Netgear MA401 in my last laptop and it
worked while...while it lasted.  It's kind of a 3 - 6 month lifespan
card, but was supported and thin enough that my other pcmcia slot was
open.  I've moved to built-in recently and use one of the atheros
chipsets.  I am much more happy with this solution, personally.  I've
heard that the orinoco chipset is in some cards that are both
high-reception and sturdy.  Perhaps cards by IBM or Cisco is where to
look for higher quality cards.  But again, I went with the Netgear
because it was like 10ish dollars on ebay.  Good luck :)
