Start Menu==>Control Panel==>Network Setup Wizard==>Run though this, normally does the trick.

OK, have you installed the BootCamp drivers?

When I installed Vista at Christmas it "just worked" certainly with ethernet, for at least a while, I haven't booted into Windows for a while though.

put the Leopard disc in while running windows. It should auto-start and install the drivers. If not, just run the setup file from the disc.

Ah Me Too!

Hey guys...

I'm having the same problem.
I'm not really sure what you're trying to say.

Setting up a network isn't working and there's no little things to connect to a wireless network on the dock/start bar thing.

I'm not sure what disk you're talking about I'm running Mac 10.4.11

If you could help that would be great.

I'm trying to run an application and make it compatible with my friends who are pc users I figured this might work...

Thanks

This is my same situation. I am on one of the black MacBooks running Leopard 10.5.7 and I have partitioned Windows XP with Service Pack 2. It wants me to activate Windows using the internet but I have no wireless internet connection on the partition. Is the above post correct in that I need my Leopard install discs to install the drivers? I am away from my home at the moment and currently do not have them with me. Is this the only option?

Yeah when you partition and install XP you don't really get the whole thing on there. You'll need to reboot and insert the install disk to load the drivers.
After that it should all work just fine.

If you can't find the disk you should maybe be able to find them somewhere to download, not sure if that's legal though.

could ask around someone might lend you the disk too?

Ok, thanks. I'll try to find someone to borrow them from.
