We just tested the D-Link DWL-160 802.11abg USB device, and it seems to
work perfectly with Linux 2.6.30 and the in-kernel ar9170 driver.  We
successfully connected to an 802.11b network on the PSU campus, and this
email demonstrates that it can communicate. :)

As an added surprise, when we went to search for the firmware for this
card, we discovered that the ar9170 driver
<http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ar9170> has GPLed firmware
<http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/ar9170.fw>, buildable with an
SH2 toolchain.  (We haven't tried it yet.)

We haven't tested 802.11a yet, but we think this one's a winner.
