I've read, and I've read - and I still can't get this to work.

Macbook Pro - Core 2 Duo. Bootcamp 2.1 + update. Reinstalled XP Home SP2 3 times(brand new purchased copy). XP works but no internet, no recognition of the wireless.

On the Device manager tab under Network adapters it says 1394 Net Adapter - no exclamation point. Under other devices it has:
- Bluetooth USB Host Controller
- Built-in Sight
- Coprocessor
- Ethernet Controller
- Network Controller
- SM Bus Controller
- Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

All have yellow exclamation points next to them. I have tried everything for almost 36 hours straight - few hours of frustrating sleep. I went into the bootcamp driver area and tried manually doing it as well. No internet - nowhere does it even mention wireless now on my MAC. The sales people assured me when I bought the MAC(which I love so much better than the PC), that this would work - AHHH - help please.

To all reading the above. Here's the solution:

When installing bootcamp in windows xp, make sure you're using the mac disks from your macbook pro, and NOT YOUR DISKS FROM YOUR WIFE's MACBOOK.

I AM SUCH AN IDIOT!

Seriously have been working on this for over 24hours straight.
