    75+ cards is not exactly limited.

    It is updated as often as a user with a card not mentioned updates it.

    It is more about chipsets than a particular make/model card.

    Ask the helpful sales staff at the store which chipset it is.

    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Do your research before buying

    Try contacting the manufacturers, that has worked for me on several occasions.

    You could always look up the FCC-ID that generally will tell you everything you need to know...
