    I don't really know how much you want to spend but if you want to do any sort of war driving you'll need an external gain antenna.

    I use and recomend getting a Buffulo USB Wireless Adpter

    I got mine at newegg

    I havent hooked it up to an antenna yet (still sourcing) but the reception is good without it. It uses an MC-Card style connector for the antenna. The old ones came with an antenna but the new ones don't.

    This is the only Wireless G adapter that i know of that has an external antenna connector.
