  1. Hi! I'm not getting the wireless driver to work. Apparently my Presario runs with the Intel PRO, but when i install the driver according to your instructions, it (Network Controller)moves from "Other Devices" to "Network Adapters", but it still has the yellow warning sign on it stating that:
    "Windows encountererd a problem installing the driver software for your device. Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attemting to install it.
    Intel(R)PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection.
    This operation returned because the timeout period expired."

    What to do?

    Regards Anders
