One thing I meant to mention before... if you are feeling really adventurous, you could always try and flash your Wi-Fi card, so that your 'hackintoshed' Mini sees it as an Apple 'Airport Extreme', as discussed here!

I plan to try this myself, but I haven't got round to doing so yet!

Ok, I tried to disable and re-enable the Wireless in the BIOS. Which setting is it? I'm not sure if I did it right. Was it WLAN Control?

What is the danger of re-flashing the wireless card? If it goes badly, can it be reversed?

I had updated my 10V from 10.6.6 to 10.6.7 and was going to run updates. I had a problem with last updates, so I decided to run NBI 0.8.5.1 or something like that.
Then I lost my Wi-Fi on the damn thing. I found a post on here that said to download the TransMac program and then get NBI ********351 and move the NBI to a USB Flash Drive and then to the Hackent0sh.
So, I did just that, and then ran the NBI 351 and rebooted.
Bing, bang, boom the wireless was back again. I then proceeded to run the latest Apple updates, and schwing! The thing is back and running again!
This site and you guys are all awesome!!
