It's all about conformance to "standards" and there are always grey areas round the edges of these standards which may make the difference between something only just working and something working well. If there are areas of 'fine tuning' then obviously manufacturers are going to tune their products to suit one another rather than a competitors product.
What i'm saying is if you have say an 802.11g router then any 802.11g card will probably communicate with it, but a card from the same manufacturer will probably communicate best.
If you have specific devices in mind do a search for a product review - that may give you a better idea of how they perform.
