Intel has new software and drivers available for three Pro Wireless card models. Version for the 2200BG, 2915ABG and 3945ABG card models was released on January 19, 2006. Most new Tablet PC and notebook models come preconfigured (by the OEM) with drivers as old as October 2004! The new software features a much richer GUI and makes connecting to various hot spots a breeze. Most importantly, if you’re tired of your connection dropping in and out or decreasing in speed, this new update could make your day!

We tested this new version on Tablet PCs with the 2200BG and 2915ABG Intel Pro Wireless cards. The results were flawless, “drop free” connections on both devices. You can get your copy of the software direct from Intel here.
