    Macbook cant connect wirelessly in XP. Windows sees the Wireless card, sees my router, but cant connect to it, I switch over to the mac side- works. I did a quick search and nothing came up. Anyone run into this problem before? my Connection is WEP enabled, but I cant seem to get to the part to put in the password.

    Early 08 macbook, 2.4 running Snow Lepoard, bootcamp 3.0
    XP pro w/service pack 2.

    Similar problem but on Win7 - Need Help too

    I have a new MacAir with 20GB partition where I installed Win 7.
    All works fine on the OSX side.
    But when on the Win7 side .. I cannot see wireless networks.
    When I plug in the ethernet ... I see the net just fine.

    Anyone have any clues for me on how to enable the wireless adaptor so that the Win7 side can use wireless ?

    Thnx,
    Freddy Fredster

    yes. I was having a similar problem as in the thread I linked to, that windows couldn't find the certificate to connect to my router, I disabled the IEEE 802.1x authentication and it worked.
