i am having the same problem- same model number compaq... I did manage to find what I think might be the device or maybe its the hardware id in windows- 4311 but trying to put that into the 80211wireless kext i find that its already there... OS X must not be looking for it. I just dont know how to check for this or to make it look for it. Can anyone help?
