"Free as in freedom" hardware

I was hoping to generate some suggestions for "free as in freedom" hardware -- particularly with wireless networking devices.  Proprietary wireless firmware seems to be creeping itself into the status quo, and the "smart-[technology]" movement isn't helping much.

To be honest, I'm asking because it's something that I feel I still know little about, so I'm open to anything and everything.

Re: "Free as in freedom" hardware

thinkpenguin does a decent job with this.  Would be great if they offered Devuan as an install option, or a Devuan edition desktop/laptop etc...

Re: "Free as in freedom" hardware

I would suspect much of the technology would be under patents and strict control by regulators. Somone somewhere will have to come up with completly new technology in my opinion.
