The ADM8211 chipset is supported.

I don't know what the differences are between Belkin 2101, 2102, and 2114.
Sorry I cannot be more informative, but they change chips in wireless
cards all of the time.

A card with the Atheros chipset, like the DWL-G520, will work.
I don't think it will cost much more than the Belkin product.
They have a good price at shentech.com (never used this merchant),
