Folks - 

It is probably best whenever possible for folks to use references 
based on the types of networks, rather than particular companies.

For example:

"Cable companies expect most of their customers to be attaching 
 routers, not computers to the modem."

"Coffee shops do NOT expect you to be associating a router with 
 their wifi."

Doing it in this manner also avoids some potential legal issues 
that David Farmer noted earlier in this thread.

FYI (and Thanks!)
