Thank you, Luis.

I was trying to find a manufacturer that supported open-source, so
that I could return the favour by buying their products.

I currently have a Netgear router, and when I bought I unpacked it
after delivery, the first thing I saw was a CD that had GPL software
on it.  This made me smile.

Perhaps Netgear do wireless cards.  I know some manufacturers are very
closed source, so I want to avoid those.
