Your best bet is to buy one of the supported Atheros 802.11n NICs -
AR5416, AR9160, AR9220.
AR9285 didn't come in a PCI flavour.
The AR9227 is a PCI version of the AR9287, but it's 2GHz only.
You can find PCI D-Link adaptors that have either AR9220 or AR5416
NICs in them. Be sure it's "dual band". Otherwise you could hunt down
a PCI->MiniPCI cradle and use that. There are a lot more mini-PCI NICs
