    Hopefully someone can help me out.

    In OSX I get great wifi performance (although every now and then I have to turn airport off then on again as it has stopped working for some reason).

    The major problem though is that under boot camp I get almost no signal and the internet can barely connect.

    This is my first mac so am very new to troubleshooting etc, any help would be extremely appreciated :)

    Thanks

    You may need to update wifi drivers. Have you ran the bootcamp update thing? Sorry I am not exactly sure what it is called. But it sounds like a driver issue.

    It could be a faulty card. This was happening to me, and the :apple: store replaced it free of charge.
