I looked at that one, but couldn't find any information on whether it was
Linux compatible, so I went with:

http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?categoryid=240&model=TL-WN822N

Which is a 300mbps model (not that I've hit anything above 150 on it yet)
but it too was plug and play...  Doesn't have an external antenna, but it
works very well for my Myth/XBMC box in my bedroom.  It pulled in about 20
networks, as opposed to the internal device on the Zotac Zbox, which saw 3.
