    I searched for a while trying to find the answer but did not find it.

    I just installed Vista Business via Bootcamp. I am not able to access the internet or anything. If I read the help stuff right I need to use the OSX install disk to install the drivers. The problem is, I don't have the install disk. Is there any other way to get the drivers? Or am I just missing something easier?

    Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

    So no internet, no OS-X disk?

    You are pretty much SOL.

    Do you mean you cannot download under vista. Surely the mac part works. If so download and burn on disk, otherwise get someone else to do it for you.

    Failing that maybe write your own ;-)

    I can access the internet from the OSX side, just not from Vista. It is the OSX install disk that I need right? I log into Vista then insert the OSX disk?

    Please inform us of how it goes, I am curious because I am in the same situation... My osx install disk is not with me right now, I will have it by the end of the week because I left it at my parents house but I am dying to get this fixed but if I need the install disk then so be it... Windows Vista is pretty useless without internet :mad:
