    Hey, I guess people thought my other post was dead but anyway, I got my mouse and keyboard working but how do I get the wireless internet to work on my laptop. I have an HP Pavilion DV2617US. Thanks

    Your wireless card is a IntelĀ® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG

    From ocix33 on the Hackint0sh.org Forum:

    If you don't know how to repair permissions there's a command for it in the OS x86 Tools app. Download: link. Check the box which says Repair Permissions and then click "Run Selected Tasks".

    From my understanding this WILL NOT work directly in Airport. You will have to run an external app. Although judging by the comments on the forum, this frustrated plenty of users so please USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
