The WaveLAN Silver only supports 64-bit WEP, but there are ways to
flash them to that of a Gold. The Gold supports full 128-bit WEP.

I have and would highly suggest the Buffalo WLI-PCM-L11GP (Also sold
under the Melco brand in some countries). It's a newer card so smaller
form factor and probably lower power draw & better range. It supports
full 128-bit WEP as well.

Unfortunately, none of the Newton-compatible WiFi cards support WPA or WPA2.
