I've had the best luck with the Linksys 10/100 pc card, model # PCMPC100.
Note that the HOWTOs mention that there are two versions of this: a
Cardbus version and a non-Cardbus version, and it emphasizes that the
Cardbus version doesn't work right. I have the non-Cardbus version, and
it's outlasted several laptops.
