I need a wireless card and have no idea what card will work out of the box for Ubuntu so I would like to know who is using what brand that works. Thanks

Are you looking for suggestions on a PCI card, PCMCIA or USB?

I changed my MSI wind's wifi card to a DELL 1490.

Personally, I own an Asus WL-167g USB adapter (based on the Ralink rt73usb chipset), and never got any problem with it.

Scroll down a bit for a list of PCI cards based on Ralink chips. That should give you no problem.
