I purchased a HP NC 4010 notebook but it did not come with a WIFI card
(even though it has a slot for a mini pci card). I've heard there
is a BIOS restriction which prevents the use of cards not provided by
Can anyone tell me if I can use an Intel Pro 2200 G (not purchased at
or another kind of cards (something cheap < $30) ?
If so, do I need to upgrade the BIOS?
It basically tells how to change some information in the EEPROM of the
card so that the BIOS recognized it as an authorized card.
