Question Trackpad problems on Windows 7 BootCamp Partition?

I'm having troubles again
I successfully installed Windows 7 on my MBA (for more information on it, see signature). I'm not sure why, but I can't click the right and middle buttons nor access the internet. I've already looked on other forums, but I can't really understand what the heck they're telling me to do. >.<

You have to install boot camp drivers in order to use anything "Mac" in windows, including special keyboard buttons, touch to click and multitouch gestures. You will also not have internet or sound....

When you made your windows installation disk in boot camp assistant, you should have selected to download the latest drivers and saved them for when you got into Windows.

If you did install the drivers then just open the Boot Camp app in windows (just press the start button and type boot camp) and in the advanced tab it has touch pad and keyboard behaviors.
