So I have tried lots of places and messed with lots of settings to no

different card."

Now if I were to look for the Ideal WiFi card for a ThinkPad T22
running FedoraCore what would I go looking for? What is the best Linux

There really isn't a "best".  There are varying degrees of support for
different cards.  Some cards "just work".  I've always prefered Orinoco
(Lucent/Agere) cards, or Prism-based cards.  If you want I have an
Orinoco Silver I'd be willing to part with.

I would definitely make sure you know which type of encryption you will be using. I have a Prism based card (built-in) to my thinkpad and am able to orinoco and wpa_supplicant on it to connect to wep and wpa based networks (respectively).

Aethos based cards use madwifi (I think) for wpa.

Make sure you buy a card who's chip someone has made drivers for
