    I installed windows on my macbook pro and so far it works just fine. however, i can't seem to get online. Of course all macs come with a wireless router built in but it won't connect to my wireless network. Does the router work w/ windows? Has anyone else had this problem? Can anyone help me out with this? lol yea i kno i sound a little panicy but i mean Windows XP was 200 bucks and if i can't get on the internet then i shouldn't have spent that money.

    It's not called a wireless router, but a wireless card. Specifically, an AirPort card. From what I've tried, yes it does work in Windows. Are you using Boot Camp or Parallels? If using Boot Camp, make sure to install the drivers from Apple Drivers CD.

    My AirPort didnt' work at the beginning either - after I had the 1.1 drivers installed and then reinstalled the 1.0 drivers, it worked.

    It's called Macintosh Drivers CD. The one you burn using Boot Camp Assistant.
