I haven't tried it because my machine has a 2945BG, which 'just works'. Follow the instructions on the Sourceforge link, there are links to all the dependencies you need with instructions for each. So take it one step at a time and it shouldn't be too difficult

I'm not sure what you've downloaded here. Did you follow the instructions on the Sourceforge link I posted? Or otherwise try downloading the driver direct from Intel (http://downloadcenter.intel.com/down...=2259&lang=eng) .
