Windows 7: Need a Wireless NIC for PCI Slot

Need a Wireless NIC for PCI Slot

I need to add a wireless NIC that will fit into my last PCI slot on my desktop. It needs to handle WPA-PSK security to be compatible with the my existing wireless network. (Netgear wireless router). The wireless NIC's I have found on the web mention they have WEP but no mention of WPA-PSK. Can someone recommend such a card which will work in this case? It should also be able to handle 15Mbs

Thank you

I used to have this pci card (from Amazon) on an XP machine. External aerial gave ok reception.
