    Is there a place I can download Windows Macbook Pro 13" (latest one) drivers for the wifi adapter? I am getting really bad connection under bootcamp Windows XP. However, I get full max bar in OSX in the same location.

    I am probably going to get flamed for this but...

    window's wifi signal indicator is far more accurate that OSX. Windows is probably giving you the best read, meaning the low bars are indeed the strength of your wifi signal.

    HOW DARE YOU...Oh wait... Your Right... In my experience OSX exaggerates WiFi signal..

    The Mac's connection is really good, like solid able to browse web sites without problems. But the window's one is not. It chops and breaks. So I am pretty sure they are both accurate.

    If you want to update the Bootcamp software you'll need Apple Software Update.. which only comes with iTunes, QuickTime or Safari for Windows.
