for USB

http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/Special:BrowseData/Wireless_adapter?Interface=USB&Chip1_brand=Atheros&MIMO_status=2x2%3A2&Supported_802dot11_protocols=abgn

AR7010+AR9280 devices (excepting the Xbox wireless adapters) use ath9k_htc which is pretty nice, but I haven't done any N sniffing with them, ath9k_htc is probably the best USB driver in the kernel in terms of raw throughput for non-sniffing use

AR9170 devices use carl9170 which mostly works, has been recommended for N sniffing, validatefcs=true is a recommended option for Kismet

for CardBus

just the Ubiquiti Networks SR71-C which is pretty nice, it uses ath9k which should be well supported
