[gNewSense-users] desperate for a gNewSense wifi card with WPA - if you know of one, please let me know!

First, let me apologize for not having followed the mailing list on that issue, at least for a while. I am becoming desperate for a wifi card for my gNewSense computers. Ideally, I would want one which works via USB, but any other solution would do provided the #^$^*!!!! card works. I have tried two cards so far, the Linksys WUSB54G version 4 and the Linksys WUSB54C . I tried directly, and then I tried with ndiswrapper. All I did was freeze the computer, badly. It gave me 'hda1 not found' and 'segmentation fault' messages *after* reboot. I had to use a live-CD to boot up with once, and then re-boot on the original hda1 to get the computers back up.
I am willing to put some money down, but I know really need a gNewSense compatible wifi card. Any suggestions?
Also - my wifi is secured with WPA. What is the utility to configure WPA encryption with gNewSense? I see the WEP option, but I see no WPA option in the security combo box in the network config application.
