I have a D-Link DCF-660W that I use with my ipaq (running familiar 0.6.1), and
it works very well. It's supposed to be pretty low power, but it's hard to
gauge without having another card.

It uses the orinoco_cs driver, and with the backlight on I get about 2hours of
use out of the ipaq with the card plugged in (regular about 4hours).

The D-Link is also physicaly small, and not T-Shaped like some of the
Linksys (I think) ones i've seen.
