Did you installed all the Apple Drivers already?
If not use the MacOSX install Disc to install them.
After that it's just to setup your internet connection in the Windows environment.

You may need to turn off the router and start it up again to reset it before starting the computer in a different OS. I'm not sure. I'm trying to determine this for myself.

When I was working on my old PC and my new Mac Pro, I noticed that if I just took the ethernet cable from the Mac or PC and connected it to the other machine, it couldn't find the internet unless I turned off the router, waited a moment and turned it back on again, connected to the other machine and then started the machine.

No you shouldnt have to do this,once the drivers are installed from your
install disk its only a case of setting up the connection in windows you
then can boot between OS's to your hearts content and still be connected
to the internet
