Default hostap: pci wifi card recommendations

Looking to drop a wifi nic (pci) into the openBSD, 4.3, and pf firewall machine and enable it as an Access Point (AP). hostap is new territory for me.

Recommendations appreciated as to which wifi nic's are good, better, best -- in host-ap mode -- for radio performance, AP firmware availability, openBSD driver quality, and generally hassle free.

WEP/WPA not an issue as link will be fortified by "ssh -w tunnel", or ipsec.

Any other pointers, advise also appreciated.

Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
