I have ordered a Dell 1505 on eBay. I am hoping that my wireless woes will be solved by the 1505...

Put in the Dell 1505 and rebooted the mini, and boom, wireless card is identified and works great!

It's another story that I had to use my pliers to remove one of the screws - it was such a harrowing experience...

I'm guessing on a Hackintosh, these steps should work as well, so, don't have to go in and reinstall a different OS before reinstalling SL.
Sadly, removing these files does not resolve the issue. Like others, I installed OS X over a windows build (7 for me) in which wifi & bluetooth had been turned off - nothing so far seems to get it wifi to work again. Unless someone knows better?
