Windows 7: Can't Detect Networks

ok, looks like bad news i'm afraid

your machine has an intel 2200BG wifi controller, and according to intel, there aren't any drivers for 7

however there is a vista one - it might work - download the installer, right-click >> properties >> chose one of the 'vista' options in the compatibility tab.

let us know the result.

err...not too long.

you're doing it in vista compatibility mode?

try sp1 or sp2.

it may not work at all, but it's worth a go...
