    Hi guys, I have a previous generation MacBook Pro with Vista and Mac OS X. Under Mac OS X, my wireless connection is fantastic, never drops. In Windows, it always only gets 2 bars and frequently disconnects. I don't do anything new to the laptop besides the fact that it is under Windows.

    Anyone know how I can fix it?

    You installed and then updated the Boot Camp drivers, right?

    Yes, I think I did. The trackpad and sound and everything else works like it should.

    From the apple software updater? Yes. It always wants to update Quicktime and Safari, though. :rolleyes:

    It's funny - mine are the reverse and I seem to get 300 mhz reception with XP even at 2.4 ghz..

    I have sort of the same problem.

    Under OSX, the connection is fantastic and almost never drops. Under Vista, the reception is a little weaker and sometimes requires me to move closer to my router or disconnect and then reconnect.

    I'm not sure how to fix this, so it's just something that I live with. The disconnect-reconnect thing is good enough for the time being. Sorry I don't have anything to say that can help you.
