Network Inopperative

I recently installed Haiku and I am having issues with network access. I have tried using the offline method to install WiFi, but it failed. I then tried connecting with the wired connection, but the connection was never detected. I am using an HP Pavilion dv5000, and I am aware that WiFi is not supported for quite a few HP Laptops; is there any plan to support HP Laptops WiFi, and why does the wired connection not work?
