I think you're probably right .. in any case it's more just an inconvenient message than anything to worry about.

I have a similar laptop: hp-compaq nx9110 with peppermint3 installed (battery dead but the rest is OK). Works very well, better than XP. The only issue is the wifi card (broadcom, don't remember which version). Is not recognized by Pp3.
This laptop is very old and weak (pentium IV, 750mb ram) but still useful for some purposes, but the lack of wifi is bad.

Have you tried to get the wireless working ?

Yes I've tried. I did a large research in the web. Apparently is very difficult to get that wifi card to work.

Why not either

a) bung it on the forum as a question .. maybe we can figure it out.
or
b) just get a "nano" USB wireless adapter

?

I got a cheap nano usb wifi dongle.
Ebay item number 141032276986. £3.60 posted isn't bad if you are in the UK. (Not affiliated but I know this one works. The explanation for installing the drivers is also on here somewhere.. I will cross link it).

It works better than my old "not nano" dongle.

You could also consider getting a matching 500mb ram cart as it will prob upgrade to 1gb, which makes it run smoothly.

Might get myself a few of those .. cheaper than the Edimax nano by a factor of at least 3 :)

Here's the driver installation instructions link:
