Does anyone know if there are any USB Wireless network adapters that are
supported under FreeBSD? (I'm running 5.0)

I have read the map pages for wi, but they only list PCMCIA cards. I know
that many companies have a PCI version of the pcmcia card. 

I have heard that you are likely to get better performance out of a USB
adapter since you can more easily move it to get a better signal. 

Are there particular manufacturers that I should purchase from or avoid? 

If anyone can offer any advice, I would appreciate it.
