The Airport Extreme also has its caveats that might make one buy a
PCMCIA/USB wireless even under OSX, namely that it will not run in
Active mode under KisMAC, which has been frustrating when I needed
wireless but couldn't crack a simple WEP key.

Avoid wlan-ng drivers at all costs. If you get a USB or PCMCIA PRISM2 or
Orinoco based card (there are several, use google), you'll have full
in-kernel support and be able to work with the wireless-tools package.
