I'd get a PCI to miniPCI adapter, and a decent miniPCI WLAN card. I
currently use a Wistron CM9.

It's not cheap but it works a treat. There are other cards on that site
too, including those designed for the MikroTik RouterBoards:
You'll also need an antenna of some sort.
I'd definitely recommend this route if you're not on a very tight
budget, as Netgear, D-Link, Linksys and the like often change the
chipset in their cards without notice and you can never tell exactly
what quality the cards are until you try them...
