Is there any wifi card, PCMCIA to be exact that will just plain work out of the box with with WPA encryption via the GUI tools?

I have had several that have done that.. all the way back to Puppy 2.15ce

The key here is to use something with a RTL (REALTEK) chipset. This is by far the best supported chipset for linux.

I have a joe 22mb (yes 22) card in my laptop now and puppy finds it.. I have not even bothered to see what chipset its using.

and of course you can always look here. http://linux-wless.passys.nl/

Good luck.. it will not be hard to find an easy working card. (unlike USB)

How is the Encore ENPWI-G2 ?

Cheapest one I can find with a realtek chipset.

Next cheapest is is Zonet ZEW1542

Found the Encore for 11 bucks + shiping

Zonet for 30 plus shipping

Anyone heard of either of these cards? I can't find any real reviews of them.
