    I've installed Windows XP (Home Edition) on my MacBook Pro using Parallels. It works fine, but it does not recognize my Airport card as an installed device. This means that it will not recognize my home wireless network (though it does recognize the Ethernet port). Any ideas what I can do to get some sort of driver installed in Windows XP running under Parallels so that it will recognize the Airport card?

    Since parallels is beta software it doesn't support a lot of stuff (USB, video card, etc)
    Sorry.

    Maybe it is not worth reading other posts too much since they are often inaccurate.

    Actually, turns out this is not true for Airport support. Parallels support answered my questions quickly. All it took to get the Airport up and running was changing the network properties in the initial interface screen from Ethernet to an "EN1" setting.
