Recently, I was looking at USB Wifi to capture traffic and I found this
list, which had a lot of good information:

I have had luck with a D-Link WUA-1340
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127081&Tpk=D-Link%2bWUA-1340) .  It worked out of the box with BackTrack, but the modules were not installed by default in Fedora 7.  

I am awaiting delivery of a BUFFALO WLI-U2-KG54-AI
(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833162130&Tpk=WLI-U2-KG54-AI).  Once that arrives, I will have something to compare against the D-Link.

Let us know what you decide to go with.
