Ice tea was spilled network wireless card stopped working

\015 A very small amount of ice tea was spilled on computer near the wireless network card (integrated on mb). The card will now not turn on. I know I can get a usb wireless adapter but is there anything I can do to get the card to work. The drivers suggest that the card is working properly. Do i just let it dry out and try again? What about the sugar?\015

Answers :

I wouldn't use the card again for fear that it may have a short in it, and burn out other components in the motherboard.

Not only the power, and signal sources from the motherboard to the wireless card, but a short in the card could result in damage to the entire motherboard as well.

Not worth it in my book.

In otherwords I would fork out for a new wireless card.
