Theres mini-pci, which is used in laptops ($15ish on eBay)... Or you
could look for 802.11 chips that you put on a PCB layout of your own.
For example, something like:
These are usually fairly self-contained, and require few additional
components to make them go. Some have separate chips for the 802.11, RF
and amplifier stages, while some are all-in-one.
You can probably find a chipset that has the features you want, and
allows you to interface to it in a simpler way that PCMCIA or PCI.
Admittedly, they're not a module you can just plug in and use, though.
