[BioC] network analyses on genes or probesets

Hi all,

I am using affymetrix microarray data. In the raw data I have probes. 
After preprocessing (background correction, normalization and 
summarization) I have probesets. Now I can use the annotation packages 
(e.g. library(hgu133a.db)) to get the assignment between probesets and 

Are there any functions, methods (median, mean,...), literature how to 
combine probesets to genes?

I want to run some network analyses on gene level. Therefore I need some 
kind of 'gene intensity'.
