How to find out the Wifi-onboard-chip manufacturer?

Assume I am sitting in front of an unknown/new computer which has a Wifi-chip on his motherboard.

How can I find out (from within Windows 7; not from manual) from which manufacturer this Wifi chip is (e.g.Intel)?

Is there a built-in info or do I need a 3rd party diagnostic tool?

From Powershell you can also just type
Get-NetAdapter
or to filter specifically wireless adapters
Get-NetAdapter | ? { $_.MediaType -like "*802.11*" } | Select InterfaceDescription,DriverProvider
