HP/Compaq Presario v2000/m2000 104-Unsupported wireless FIX

HP/Compaq Presario v2000/m2000/dvXXXX/zeXXXX 104-Unsupported wireless FIX

Back to HP Pavilion (ze2000) ZE2005EA BIOS fix

Bought a (new) miniPCI card and been greeted with this?

104-Unsupported wireless network device detected.
System Halted. Remove device and restart.

This info has been taken from a Compaq V2000 Pheonix BIOS supplied by Andy Schneider from his V2000.
Similarily it occurs in the BIOSCOD1.ROM section of the BIOS in a similar looking area.

I have not yet heard back from Andy, but I imagine if you replace one of the codes similarily as with the HP ze2000 example, it will have the same result.

UPDATE 11/May/06 Chris R has successfully modded his Compaq V5000 to take a Prism GT based card.
UPDATE 06/May/06 Carol said she has successfully modified a HP Pavilion dv8000 and HP Compaq Presario V5000.
UPDATE 10/April/06 - Have just had an email from Jordan aka JtoP confirming a successfull mod of a V2000 F.22 BIOS with a Dell Truemobile 1450 mini PCI card.
BCM1450M, PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4324&SUBSYS_00031028
JtoP replaced E4 14 20 43 on 00002540 to E4 14 24 43, 3C 10 F8 12 on 00002580 to 28 10 03 00


I image it is also a similar case with all these mechanically similar notebooks, I would be interested to hear from anyone who has done it with one and will share the info on this site if they so wish.
