    The wireless on my boot camp side (XP) won't connect to my home router when is is security-enabled. It will connect fine when I take the WPA off and leave it open. My Mac side works fine in either. I've had this issue for 6 months, I just can't figure out why it won't work. A fresh windows install did not fix the issue. Anybody have any ideas?

    WPA or WPA2?

    I initially had my router (Linksys WRT54GL) set to WPA. My MBP would connect fine in OS X, but it wouldn't in XP. I changed the router to WPA2, and it's been working fine ever since then.

    The above patches won't install, they are only for SP1.

    Bump! I still haven't been able to locate a solution, so my XP in Boot Camp, still has no internet access, unless I'm accessing it under VMWare. Any other ideas? Anybody else had this problem?
