Do companies make linux based wifi routers or ADSL modems? If yes, what are these companies?

Are you asking what companies makes "open" Linux routers (easy to hack), or are you asking how popular Linux is amongst the router makers? –  Johan Aug 18 '09 at 11:49
    
First option: I'm interested in open, customizable routers with open linux distributions. –  Valentin Vasilyev Aug 18 '09 at 12:58

Linksys is known do make Linux based routers, and other Linux based devices.

The OpenWRT project has a hardware compatibility list. If it's in there, then linux can at least be installed on it, but most (all?) of them run some version of linux pre-installed. See http://oldwiki.openwrt.org/TableOfHardware.html

Actually, most companies use some sort of Linux for their routers. I know for sure DLink have linux on my DSL-604GT+.
