I was just wondering what products for WiFi work well with Ubuntu out of the box?

I've heard that Linksys pretty much will work without alot of workarounds... Is this true?

Also if anybody has a WiFi express card or a USB adapter that worked out of the box this information would be appreciated as well. I've given up on the ndiswrapper and the internal wireless card.

And does ubuntu list anywhere what wireless products are know to work out of the box for the system right at this moment in time so folks will be able to find them and know what product will and won't work with the OS?
