    Today I installed Windows 7 64 bit, on to my Macbook Unibody. Everything worked perfectly, partitioning the disk space, Installation of Windows 7 and finally installing the Bootcamp drivers from my Mac OS X disc which came with my Mac. Until the internet would not work and my wireless, Netgear, could not be found. I cant find any option to "Turn on wireless" or anything like that. I looked online and I found out that I may need to download the Bootcamp 3.2 update in Windows, the problem is.. How can i download it if i have no internet in Windows !? :eek: :confused:

    Also, if you have any ideas of any other reasons my connection will not be found it would be much appreciated.

    Hope you can help, thanks.

    1) from your reply I gather you have access to a DVD/CD reader
    2) on another computer you can go to the Apple website and under support find the 3.2 update. Download it and put it on a CD or USB stick
    3) insert in your laptop and start install

    I'm not sure I understand, can't you just boot into OSX and download it there?

    Oh thanks I thought that might work, but do i have to download it and put it on a disc/USB from another windows computer or can i download it from the mac operating system on my macbook, where i do have internet access and put it on to a disc or USB from there, then switch to windows and insert the disc/USB?

    I don't know because it downloads as a text edit file, does that matter?

    IT doesn't matter what the file looks like in OS X just copy it to USB or direct to the bootcamp partition if you have NTFS-3G.

    Ok, since i have the 3.0 version, should I just download the latest version straight away or should i download every other version in order first?
