Does anyone have a wireless adapter for the new "N" wireless standard (PCI, PCI express, or USB) that works in Jaunty (64 bit)?

Just bought a netgear WN311B and there is no way I can make it work. The netgear forum moderators are hostile to linux questions so I'm "voting with my feet" and not buying anything else from netgear and I'm taking this one back to the store.

I'm looking through the forum guides
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessCardsSupported on this subject as well, but the tables of adapters known to work do not (for me, anyway) show whether or not a particular item is 802.11b, or g, or n.

UPDATE:

It's not worth it. The desktop machines I have give excellent performance with an ethernet cable. Maybe some day Ubuntu will handle wireless adapters with ease, but it is too easy just to plug a cable into the back of the machine and go right on with my work. Cheaper too.
