    I'm trying to get my Airport Express set up so that I can use it while in Bootcamp (running winXP), but can't seem to figure it out. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Perhaps you can provide more details.

    Did you follow the steps in the BootCamp utility?
    During the BootCamp XP setup, did you install the drivers from the OS X DVD?

    What does your Windows Device Manager window show under Network Adapters? Is the adpater there and the driver?

    I've got Bootcamp set up correctly and installed the drivers from my Leopard CD. Not sure why it won't connect, but it does connect to other wireless networks that do not run through the Airport Express.

    Okay, that rules out a hardware or driver issue on the computer, if it connects to other routers.

    Using the Windows connection manager, does the computer "see" the Airport base station?

    the computer can "see" the wireless network from the Airport Express, it just does not seem to be able to join. Right now I have it on WPA2 encryption but when I attempt to join it asks for the wep key.
