Windows 7: Intel 2200BG network adapter - Win 7 driver?

29 Nov 2009   #1

Intel 2200BG network adapter - Win 7 driver?

When will Intel drivers be available to support the Windows 7* operating system (OS) that Microsoft will be releasing to manufacturing on October 22, 2009?
Updated and signed drivers for many of the wireless products will be available to download for the Windows 7 operating system October 22, 2009. Automatically detect wireless adapter and download drivers.
That said;

Intel has discontinued support for the Intel ProSet/Wireless 2200BG Network Adapter. There might be some generic drivers capable of Win7 out there, but I can't find them on the Intel site.

I did find Vista drivers here.

Update: These drivers worked and this old lappy is now on-line!

I hasten to add, this machine is runing quite crisply on 7 x32 despite only having 64MB of shared RAM for its somewhat pathetic on-board display chip, and only 512megs of total system RAM. Limited aero, but reasonable 3D for the included windows games and so forth.

I mention this because its a great lappy for my web-hungry teen, and while it won't hold her off forever, it will give her a happy year or three. Its a shame (verging on crime) that manufacturers would like owners of 4 yr old gear to push it all into a landfill, simply for want of signed drivers.

I hope this site is able to extend many lives in this way.
