    I Bootcamped my 2011 MBP with Lion and successfully installed Windows 7 but am unable to connect to the internet. I can't seem to install the drivers to run any internet either. Any help is appreciated.

    Did you use one of those "lite" Win7 versions/variants ? incase you dont know they remove A LOT of drivers including such that you need . Solution ? safe the trouble and get a full copy or another "lite" edition with the drivers you need :)

    has anyone figured this out? I'm having the same problem. I've read somewhere that you need the original install disc and it will install all the drivers, but I have lion, and that was downloaded, so I'm not sure how to get drivers on my windows partition. What can I do?

    You'll need to run the Bootcamp assistant (in OSX) and let it download the Windows drivers for you. After that you can copy them into some usb-stick or cd, reboot to Windows and run the installation program from that usb-stick/cd.

    Cool I'll try it out.

    I figured this was what I needed to do, and for whatever reason, I opened BootCamp Assistant, but it just prompted me to intall Windows. But this time I was given the option to download Windows Updates... Not sure what happened. Thanks!
