if you were asked to upload hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe, then there is 
something really strange going on as you do not need these files. Please 
make sure that you have uploaded a Windows XP (and not Windows NT, 2000, 
etc...) driver to the Web Configurator. You could also try with 
different versions of the Windows XP driver.

We are aware of the dead link for the 2200BG on our web site and it will 
be replaced hopefully soon.
