    I'm having the same problem here too. When I first intstalled Vista, it connected fine. After running the Bootcamp drivers it stopped working. I tried to follow the directions in the links above but nothing was working. The command line wasn't working for me. Any suggestions? Could I maybe delete one of the bootcamp drivers that may be no longer be allowing me connect? Thanks.

    I am having the same problem...I have tried absolutely everything I have seen online, and have used the above method to install the iSight driver. But what is the driver name for the airport??? Vista is useless to me if I cannot use the airport wireless card. Please help!!!

    Just go here and download the D-Link DWA-645 driver so that you can use 802.11a/b/g/n functionality rather than being limited to the 802.11a/b/g functionality.
