    Anything with a Ralink or Prism2 chipset'll be fine

    I'd go with Ralink since those are more recent.

    Most Atheros or Broadcomm ones work too.

    Usually, Ralink and Prism2 work right when Plugged in.

    Here is a List of Wifi devices that work with Linux. (It says BackTrack but its Linux. BackTrack is a "Security Tool" based on Linux)

    If I were you, I'd go with Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04)

    gOS may be based off Google, but its really Crappy.

    Its mainly an Internet OS.
