    Hey guys, I have a Macbook and decided to get XP on it with boot camp, but I have a problem. HOW IN THE HELL DO I PICK UP WIFI? I don't get it when I turned on my Mac for the first time it was soooo simple. How do I pick up wifi. (Please no "Just google it's" Google is giving me a hard time.

    get your Leopard disc, chuck it into your MB, and install the drivers that come with the disc. should get you up and running :)

    Right... which part do you need help with? The driver part? The finding/joining a network part? The hotfix for WPA2 part?

    the drivers are on the Mac OSX Leopard discs :) when you are booted in XP, put the Leopard install disc in and the installer should automatically run for you.

    the drivers for your mac are supplied on the osx install disk if its 32 version just click install bootcamp if its 64bit there are posts about how to install it you just have to run the install as admin but its fairly easy to read through and once bootcamp is installed your wireless will work
