We received a second-hand desktop PC (I know, right!?) that
we've set up for my older son to use.  We recently moved it
far, far away from our home office, and I don't want to even
contemplate wiring up Ethernet across the house for it.

It's a Small Form Factor (SFF) Dell Optiplex 745, and IIRC has one
low-profile PCI Express slot available right now.
(Specs for the thing are here, if you're curious:

But, it also has a bunch of unused USB ports, too.
Now, I've heard that USB WiFi on Linux is: "do not want",
because the drivers are crap, but it also seems like the
easiest plug-and-play solution, if it'd work.

So I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for
Linux-friendly (*Ubuntu) WiFi devices in either of
these form-factors... (low-profile PCI, or USB)?

Thanks in advance!
