I hate cards with dongles, so I picked up a few 3com's, model numbers
3CXE589ET and 3CXE589EC. The EC has the extra port for a dongle if you
so wish, but both have the pop out x-jack port for a standard RJ-45
connection. The ET model is the ideal one to go for, and I picked them
up for about US$4-5 each on ebay. Do a search for "3com Xjack" or the
individual model numbers.
