If you look at

you will find a lot of WiFi devices. There are a lot of links to instructions from this page
No WiFi device will work out of the box. You need to select the network and enter the network security key, just like in Windows.
To install a WiFi device the steps are
1. Install the firmware if necessary (The latest Raspbian already contains firmware for most popular Ralink and Realtek devices)
2. Set the network name by editing a file or using a graphical network manager.
3. If required, set the network security key by editing a file or using a graphical network manager.
My personal favourite at the moment is
I haven't used one yet (delivery time is 4 weeks) but it apparently can be used as an Access Point so you don't need to use your smartphone as a hotspot. There are also tutorials showing how to set it up.
