    you will need to check your wireless network configuration and tell us about it. is it WAP, is it WPA, is it hidden etc.

    sometimes windows has a bit of trouble recognising networks...sometimes it doesnt. just needs a boot eheh

    Similar Problem

    Hello, this is my first time here on MacRumors. Yesterday, I've got a MacBook, but I'm trying to connect to the internet. I have a modem which is connected to my Windows XP Desktop, and also a printer connected to it. I've run the Windows XP Home or Small Office Network Setup yesterday, and I set Windows XP to be the "gateway to the internet with other computers connected to it either with wire or wirelessly". Then it told me to use my Windows XP Disk to set up the network on my MacBook... But the thing is, the XP disk wouldn't run on my MacBook, what should I do? :apple:
