List of USB Wireless Compatible with Linux + Support Master Mode

I have been looking for USB wireless adapter that works with master mode (AP) and it’s really a PITA job. The full list of supported devices available here: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Devices/USB

BUT, it’s really difficult for me to find the device, some of them are outdated devices and most of them are not available in the market, and to check whether it supports master mode or not, I have to check it with Linux utilities (iwconfig). Here is what I found from Google:

Finally I found one with very cheap price (less than USD 10) which is TP-LINK WN422G with wireless-compat driver (ath9k_htc)

This device can work with hostapd. I use this device with ARM board (Samsung SMDK6410), running Linux 2.6.28
