    Trying to get my system up and running after replacing a dead Harddrive


    Getting the message

    Intel Pro Wireless 2200BG NEtwork connection #4

    An error occurred while trying to install this device

    The name is already in use as either a service name or a service display name


    I've tried uninstalling the hardware from the device manager and rebooting. Windows will find it, it renames it with a new # (e.g. I've tried 4 times now, hence the #4 after the name).


    CAn't seem to figure this one out.

    Any thoughts?




    BTW ...Dell Latitude C610 running winXP

    Thanks in advance

    With a little diligence, I found the answer.


    See this article:

    Network adapter install problems

    A slight change from the recommended, the card tried to install once I rebooted so I did the regedit part First , THEN I deleted the network adapters in the device manager.

    In the registry editor, the key related to THIS card is W22n50 which I deleted.

    On the next boot everything installed correctly.
