    Okay, so I just installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. I'm already having trouble with the Wireless network. For some reason it won't let me connect to any wireless network (only via ethernet). I was able to connect to a network via VMWare however. Is there a fix for this? I saw something about Broadcom, but I don't have an ISP or whatever, just a router with WEP. Then in Windows, it shows the caution symbol (like it wasn't installed right) under the iSight Camera, Built-in keyboard, and computer (could be network). I used the Bootcamp Assistant 3.0.2 to install Windows 7.

    Run apple software update to upgrade to 3.1 and see if your problems go away.

    I tried this: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL996 , but it was a .exe and I couldn't install it on the Mac side, tried installing it on Windows, but it said I needed Bootcamp 3.0 first. Still a little confused. Software update didn't find any updates by the way.

    Edit: Found out I needed to install the bootcamp drivers from the install DVD on the Windows side as well... I feel kind of dumb. Will update with the results.
    Update: Yup, that was it. Thanks for the insight ^_^

    Yup the Apple Software Updater I meant was the Windows app. I should have been clearer.
