    Hello everyone,

    I recently installed windows XP on my computer so that I could play games like Age of Empires 2 and Counterstrike on my mac here with other people at college.

    I installed XP, everything went fine... Except I can't connect to the internet for some reason. When I try to connect to my home network, it says that my computers network settings are different than that of the networks...

    Any ideas how to fix this? Am I needing a driver so that windows can recognize my wireless card?

    I also have yet to install the OSX disc in Windows... thats not working aswell :mad:

    I don't think you can really do anything until you install the OS X disk in Windows. Why can't you do that?

    I had this problem with Windows Vista, this is how I resolved it:
    1. I updated Windows Software. Even if it says it's installed all updates, sometimes you have to tell it to check after you've updated and you'll have more.
    2. I installed the Mac OS X disk.
    3. I updated all of the Bootcamp Software.
    4. Restart

    Hope this works
