Should have been identified when you installed. I'd bet on Broadcom,
although the HP site lists 3 different models, two of which also might
have intel wireless. Best check on the XP side of the house. The info
should be there. Older Broadcom 43xx are supported in the kernel if you
can download the driver, and cut the firmware out of it.

You should have the dv6111eu model. Go to the HP site, and search for
it. Once you find the correct model, you can go from there.
