Yes found the code for the chip in the online manual for my laptop. I just need to find my wireless switch to turn it on.

Doesn't have anything on the side of the laptop, does it? I think not.

Did the manufacturer of this chip come with any documentation?

It's an intel 2200 PRO wireless chip or something. Maybe I'm confusing the wireless chip's name with the laptop model number. I know it's a compaq. I'll double check the model number and post it here tomorrow.


There are no wifi switches anywhere on the computer. I installed the intel drivers and it senses the chip is there, it just says to turn the switch on. But I don't see any wifi switches anywhere.

Disregard this if I already asked, do you have the latest drivers?

There's the keyboard picture. And I have installed the drivers direct from Intel's site.
