Windows 7 Driver for Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG

    Question

  • Hi,

    I've upgraded my MotionComputing LE1600 Tablet from Vista Business to Windows 7. A relatively seemless process and a more efficient OS. However, I need the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG driver for my WiFi card or maybe even a generic one? Anyway have a suggestions?

    Thanks,

  • I have a DELL Lattitude D830 with the Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN. I upgraded from Vista Business 32bit and all of the netwrok connections (wired and wireless) went out. The wireless told me I had an invalid IP configuration and that I could connect locally, but not internet. Looked like a DHCP issue - couldn't get a valid IP configuration, coudn't specify static IP information.

    I tried *everything* to get the network to work. Luckily, I stumbled across this post. If you aren't familiar with it (I wasn't), in order to install in Vista Compatibility mode, right-click on the .msi and choose "Troubleshoot Compatibility", then choose Vista from the list of OSs. I DID get the latest drivers, both from Dell and Intel (The one that I installed was from Dell, haven't tried the Intel version which is slightly newer under this process). You may have to get the newest version to get it working - not sure.

  • I have an IBM laptop with the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG. 

    i managed to find a driver for Vista from the manufacturer.

     When loading it , i had to right click on the setup file and run it in Vista compatibilty Mode.

    the only problem i have found is trying to use a printer connected through USB on another Windows 7 Machine.

             I keep getting error 0x00000721.

     

    all my other networked computers are able to connect to this printer fine.

  • Thanks for your reply, the driver that I need is for Windows 7 not Vista unfortunately.

  • My Sony VGN 5SM uses the same driver. For the Windows 7 beta I had to download a driver file from the Intel site (It was 12.2.0.0_X.zip, an XP file but worked fine).... For Windows 7RC I received a Windows Update immediately after the installation, specifically for this driver.

  • I loaded Win7 beta (Build 7100) on a Dell Latitude X1 with a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG NIC.
    I did the initial OS load using the physical ethernet connection and performed the required on-line OS updates. After many, many reboots for all the OS updates I configured the wireless interface with very little difficulty (no additional drivers required, for the wireless NIC)

    good luck

  • The corollary to this that you need to make the new installation using an ethernet connection in order to get the updates.

    If it is a laptop, it may be worth buying a spare ethernet cable so that you can connect to your router alongside your desktop. That way you can use the latter for reading installation guides at the same time.

  • That's hilarious, since when you download either the XP or vista 2200gb driver from dell, the XP doesn't do anything and the vista says incompatible. hahahaha. you're funny. and useless.

    I can also attest to this. Downloaded the 32bit Vista driver from Intel, and it's working 100% on 32bit Windows 7.
