Hi! anybody know where to get Intel Pro wireless 2200BG driver for Win 7?

Been tinkering around with new Win 7 in my old ASUS A3E laptop trying to turn on my wireless which was fine and working under Win XP.

Be warned!!! Downloaded driver and app from intel and tried to install in Win 7 and was appropriately warned by Win 7 for possible problem. Ignored warning and proceeded and resulted to  - Win 7 CRASHED big time!!! Even with built-in recovery tool and online recovery help Win 7 install could not be saved! In the end have to redo a full install again but no more wifi as of now until I can find the appropriate driver.

Anybody can point me to these wifi drivers for Win 7 would be very much appreciated.

My feedback in the new Win 7 with my old Asus A3E laptop is really good. Without the wifi, found Win 7Prof was even faster than WinXP. Below is my hardware and configuration setup:

ASUS A3E laptop - Intel Centrino 1.73Ghz
                          1.256 GB Ram
                           250GB HDD

OS config:  Triple boot - Linux Mint 7 (Gloria), Win XP, Win 7 Professional

Note: On Win 7 install, wireless driver exist and in good working condition as found in the Device Manager, problem - doesn't work and can't connect to my router. Fn + wireless button won't work.

I have had the 2200BG wireless running fine on my laptop (Acer 1694) under both the Win7 RC1 and now since monday the RTM.

Try the driver here:

I can't remember exactly but I think I got it working by extracting the files from the self-extracting exe then ran the setup.

Good luck.
