Are you aware of any USB wireless adapters on the market today that support WPA and specifically 802

First of all, I enjoy this Web site and the insight! My question is: Are you aware of any USB wireless adapters on the market today that support WPA and specifically 802.1x? It's easy to find cardbus and PCMCIA but I can't locate USB's.

One wireless USB adapter that I've used with WPA and preshared key and 802.1X is the D-Link DWL-122. Retail USB adapters that have received WPA certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance include the Microsoft Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter MN-710 and the Dell TrueMobile USB 2.0 Adapter Model #1300. At this time, the D-Link DWL-G120, Buffalo WLI-USB-G54, and OfficeConnect Wireless 11g USB Adapter also claim to support WPA, but more are sure to follow.
