    I'm having trouble setting up my printer to run from windows. I have a Macbook Pro, and successfully installed Windows XP sp3. I have an HP photosmart printer connected wirelessly using an Apple Airport Express. I have no problem printing from the Mac partition, but can't set up my wireless mouse or the printer when I switch to Windows. Can anyone help? Thanks, Rick

    I assume that you have installed the Apple supplied drivers found on DVD #1 of the recovery set (installed in XP).

    Please confirm that your XP WiFi connection is otherwise stable (you can connect to you LAN and you can get to the internet wirelessly).

    Yes, I installed the Apple drivers in (XP) after I installed Windows using Boot Camp.
    I connect using a cable modem and then wirelessly through a Linksys router. I'm on line in XP with no problem on the Macbook Pro. I just can't seem to connect my Printer or wireless mouse when in XP.
