maybe a bit OTT....
I see you say your wirless is not working.?

I have a DV6716ez and the specs on the box said that the Wireless was a 4965AGN, even the manual from HP's website said so, but Ubuntu told me otherwise! It turned out to be a BCM 94312MCG from Broadcom, so I physically took it out to check and yes it was! GREAT there was a kext fix for it!

I hope this might inspire you to run Ubuntu or such or maybe take the card out and check the model number on the chip, maybe you will be pleasantly surprised!?
