    The new dv6z seems to be using similar (same?) cards for wi-fi and bluetooth. Thus, the wireless adapter is a Broadcom chipset and not Intel or Atheros. I noticed that the virtual wireless adapter is not installed, which shows usually up as wireless network connection 2, and allows one to use programs like Connectify. Does this card not support this technology in Windows 7 or is there a driver I can install to rectify this?
