Working WiFi dongles?

Hi,
does anyone know which WiFi dongles definitely work with the latest Debian OS, and what driver/firmware do I need to use it?

There is a list of WiFi adaptors here. Some are labelled as working with specific distributions.

Note also there is some strange interaction between LXDE and some WiFi dongles as described here:
