Wireless MINI PCI Nic has arrived and been installed. Stoopid Laptop wouldnt recognize it at first. Spent several hours working with Compaq Tech Support, reinstalling drivers and no luck, they suggested taking the machine back to Fry's and having them look at it. 45 minutes of driving and traffic later, I power the laptop up at the service desk and it asks to install the drivers for the NIC. grrr.
