I don't care about speed as much as distance, I wanted to know what card out there is known for good distance....I know draft N and all that, but seeing as I use my laptop for hotspots and majority of spots are still 802.11g .,...im more worried about finding good distance for that.

Any brands known for long distances?

Been looking at Belkin products.

It not the wifi card brand that you are looking for. It does not matter what brand wifi card is, all of them have same range, if you want long range distance, what you are looking for is wifi antenna. Here are many different distances on all wifi antennas, my wifi dual antenna on broaband router capable to reach 50 metres but you are looking for long distance, you may interest in high power antenna for laptop wifi card like this (http://www.radiolabs.com/products/wireless/waverv2.php), it can reach up to 1 mile. Here may be other antennas could reach up to 2 or 3 miles. :)
