    Ok so I just boot camped my Mac Book Pro 10.5.8 2.66 Ghz intel Core 2 duo with a 32 bit Professional version of Xp with Service pack 3 (Sorry if i got name wrong) Boot camping worked fine I installed bootcamp tools from leopard disk. However, its acting like my computer doesn't have a built in wireless card in it. Does anybody know what I need to do such as install a driver or something??? Not sure what to do next thanks for any feedback.

    This is what my airport card is stated as being don't know if this helps :S

    Wireless Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x8D)
    Wireless Card Locale: USA
    Wireless Card Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (

    Did you install the XP Boot Camp 2.1 update from Apple which is required for XP SP 3? Download from here. Read the Apple instructions carefully. And note that the file is a Windows executable and must be installed from within Win XP.

    managed to run the update by downloading it on my mac side and then transfering it over via usb the install worked fine. It even said that it had fixed both network cards however, it still doesnt work :( I only have a version of Windows xp sp3 so. theres no way for me to install before updating.
    Anyone else experienced this problem is there anyway for me to uninstall Sp 3 back to SP2
