WiFi Drivers for Tecra M2 S430 - PTM20U-0M06V8

This is completely nuts.

 

Despite trying seemingly EVERY accursed WiFi/Network driver on this site I simply CANNOT find a suitable WiFi driver for my Tecra M2 S430 - Part no: PTM20U-0M06V8

 

What type of WiFi hardware does this thing use?!?

 

It took me about six hours just to find the Ethernet driver, so at least I can now connect the laptop to the Internet via a LAN cable to my router, but I badly need to get the WiFi working too.

 

Under the Device Manager I have listed under Other Devices a yellow question mark next to "Network Controller" which is of course the built-in WiFi device.

 

Cany anyone advise which driver I need please and where to get it before my hair goes grey?

 

 

Many thanks!

And double posting won't help, either.

And to reply to my accursed double post, here's the solution:

 

Went to Intel's site and downloaded Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows XP 32-Bit

 

So basically the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG drivers - I have no idea why the same drivers from this site didn't work!

I can't break the chain, so here's a 'double' glad you got it working.
