Hewlett Packard DM4 WiFi

Hi all, I just tested a HP DM4 in a computer store with a Mint DVD live boot disc and the laptop worked well with one exception that gives me Sony shivers (going back a few years with serious incompatibility in certain wifi cards). The wifi card did not appear to work and with store alarms going off (nothing to do with my tweaking bios settings honest) I didn't have time to run any console commands to investigate the wifi card.

Does anyone have experience of this device working?

I personally never used it, but searching around on google came up with some good results. (That is just more of a general link)

Those are just for reference; As far as the actual wireless, most likely you will need to download and/or configure the correct drivers for it. Good luck if you do get it!
